The Alicia Patterson Foundation
2004 Fellowship Winners
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Eight journalists have been selected to receive one of journalism’s most sought-after fellowships, an Alicia Patterson Foundation grant. The winners were selected through a highly competitive process of screening by a panel of accomplished judges, as well as submitting detailed proposals, examples of past work and references. Recipients spend their fellowship year traveling, researching and writing articles or photo essays on their projects for the APF Reporter, a quarterly magazine published by the Foundation and available via this web site.
The trustees of the foundation also announced that one fellow has been named in honor of Josephine Patterson Albright, who was a major benefactor of the foundation. The Josephine Patterson Albright fellow is Builder Levy, a freelance photographer who is examining mining practices in Appalachia. The foundation’s fellows for 2004, and their research topics, include:
Judges for the 39th annual competition included:
Sandy Close, editor, Pacific News Service
Robert Lee Hotz, science writer, Los Angeles Times
Joel Millman, chief, U.S.-Mexico Border bureau, Wall Street Journal and APF Fellow ‘95
Fred Sweets, senior photo editor, Associated Press
Ellen Warren, senior correspondent, Chicago Tribune
The fellowships are made possible through a bequest by the late Alicia Patterson, who was editor and publisher of Newsday for 23 years before her death in 1963. The one-year grants are awarded to working print journalists to pursue independent projects of significant interest and to write articles based on their investigations for the APF Reporter. Applicants must be U.S. citizens with at least five years of professional print journalism experience. The 40th annual competition will open in June and all entries must be submitted by October 1, 2004.
