The Carey Institute for Global Good is dedicated to making a better world by contributing to a strong, educated and just society. It Values -Citizens and civil society should: be educated, healthy and safe; be informed, empowered and engaged; have their rights protected, sufficient representation and the right to fully participate in the democratic process, Governance should be: effective, transparent and accountable; responsive, responsible and representative; inclusive, just and participatory and Development should be: economically, ecologically and socially ethical, equitable and sustainable.

About the Fellowship:

Logan Nonfiction Program supports this belief by advancing deeply reported, longform nonfiction about the most pressing issues of the day and helping to disseminate it on a variety of media platforms to the widest possible audience.

Faced with shrinking advertising revenues and audiences, many magazines, newspapers, broadcasters and book publishers have reduced in-depth projects. Further, massive technological changes in the media industry have transformed the marketplace. The Logan Nonfiction Program seeks to address the public’s need for longform nonfiction to inform the policy debate essential to democracy. No such program in the United States supports only nonfiction reporters and writers working on such important social, political, health, environmental, human rights and justice topics.

The Logan Nonfiction Program offers two fellowship classes per year—one in the fall (October-December) and one in the spring (February-April).The institute welcomes between 10-20 nonfiction writers, documentary filmmakers, photojournalists, podcasters and multimedia creators per class. Fellows are provided lodging, meals, workspace, professional guidance and community. Fellowships range between 5-10 weeks and take place on the Carey Institute for Global Good’s historic 100-acre campus in upstate New York.


Logan Nonfiction fellows at the Carey Institute are provided all the necessary tools to complete their critical work. Lodging, work space, sophisticated technological support (including Wi-Fi, a state-of-the-art screening room and dedicated space, equipment and software for video, film and radio editing) and meals are provided. Fellows may also benefit from the mentorship of several board members and internationally renowned journalists.

The organization also helps selected print fellows convert their work into audio, video or digital media through the expertise of our partners. The Institute is eager to convene issue-oriented conferences related  to our fellows’ projects to bring their reporting to policy-makers and other experts. A fellow’s duration of stay may range from four weeks to three months.
