Call for Applications: Student Journalist Reporting Seminar in Israel

By Friday, August 4, 2017

The Philos Project invites Christian college student journalists, broadcasters, podcasters, and aspiring media professionals to apply to participate in a 10-day reporting seminar in Israel this winter.

The Philos Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting positive Christian engagement in the Middle East by strengthening minority communities in the region, and encouraging the Western Church to have a positive relationship with those communities. This seminar will be offered in partnership with our daughter organization, Passages.

The program will take place entirely in Israel. Two professional journalists will attend and teach evening seminars to hone students’ reporting skills. Each participant will be asked to file a story while overseas–either for their student publication, a publication of their choice, or for The Region–the Philos Project’s blog.

While no academic credit is offered for the program, it will provide valuable first-hand experience reporting, and a life-changing opportunity to visit the Holy Land. The seminar is scheduled conveniently after Christmas, but before most school schedules begin in January.

Trip Dates: December 30, 2017—January 10, 2018
Application Deadline: September 8, 2017

Cost: $622 includes flights from New York airport and all meals, transportation, speaking fees, etc. in country.
