Proposals Sought for 2005 Soros Justice Fellowships
Deadline: September 22, 2004

The Soros Justice Fellowships support outstanding individuals who will advance the criminal justice priorities of the Open Society Institute’s U.S. Justice Fund (<a href=""></a>). These priorities include reducing the nation’s over-reliance on policies of punishment and incarceration, restoring judicial discretion and eliminating race and class disparities in the U.S. criminal justice system, and encouraging the successful resettlement of people returning from prison.

Through three programs, the Soros Justice Fellowships seed innovation in criminal justice activism, lawyering, policy analysis, research, scholarship, and media coverage.

Soros Justice Advocacy Fellowships: Two-year fellowships to fund innovative projects designed by individuals working in law, organizing, public health, public policy, and other disciplines that will have a measurable impact on issues underlying the fund’s criminal-justice priorities.

Soros Justice Senior Fellowships: One-year fellowships to enable experienced individuals, including academics, activists, lawyers, and community leaders, to raise the level of national discussion and scholarship on issues that are key to the fund’s criminal justice priorities.

Soros Justice Media Fellowships: One-year fellowships to support journalists and documentarians in print, radio, photography, and film and video to improve the quality of media coverage of issues at the core of the fund’s criminal justice priorities.

Detailed program guidelines and application forms are available on the U.S. Justice Fund Web site.
