Sandra Burton Nieman Fellowship for Filipino Journalists

The Ninoy and Cory Aquino Foundation (NCAF), sponsors of the Sandra Burton Nieman Fellowship, announces the start of the application process to select the first fellow of the program in 2011.

The Nieman Program has agreed that the Manila-based Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility (CMFR) will be in charge of the selection process. CMFR will receive applications starting December 1. Deadline for applications will be January 15, 2011. Application forms may be downloaded from links provided below.

Sandra Burton was the Hong Kong bureau chief of TIME magazine who accompanied then opposition leader former Senator Benigno Aquino Jr. on his flight home to Manila on August 21, 1983. The senator was killed on the tarmac upon his arrival. Ms. Burton reported on the assassination and the political turmoil triggered by the death of the opposition leader as well as the events that led to the fall of the Marcos dictatorship in February 1986. She continued to report on the democratic transition and the presidency of Mrs. Corazon Aquino, developing strong ties with many Filipino journalists working during that period.

Ms. Burton passed away on February 27, 2004 in Bali where she lived after retiring from journalism. She left a scholarship fund to the NCAF to support the study of Filipino journalists in the US.
