Soros Justice Fellowships
[posted from RFP Bulletin]
Soros Justice Fellowships Deadline Announced
Deadline: September 15, 2004
The U.S. Justice Fund, a program of the Open Society Institute (<a href="http://www.soros.org/">http://www.soros.org/</a>) and the Soros Foundations Network, supports individuals who will further its mission of reducing America’s overreliance on policies of punishment and incarceration and restoring discretion and fairness to the U.S. criminal justice system. Through three fellowships — the Soros Justice Advocacy, Senior, and Media — the program funds dynamic professionals from varied disciplines such as the law, public health, and the media to design and implement projects that will reflect and support the work of initiative programs, including the Gideon Project and the After Prison Initiative.
Through its Soros Justice Fellowship program, OSI also seeks proposals that focus on issues not emphasized by Justice Fund programs but nevertheless related to the initiative’s mandate. These may include such issues as immigration detention or groundbreaking areas that would expand current research and activities within the field. The fellowship program welcomes applications from former prisoners.
Application materials will be available on the OSI Web site in late April. See the site for information on the Justice Fund’s programs and previous fellowship recipients.
