Attn: young travel writers, bloggers, photographers, and journalists, the Glimpse Fall 2010 Correspondents Program is now accepting applications.

GLIMPSE is a worldwide program powered by Matador and supported in part by the National Geographic Society.

Glimpse’s mission statement:

Glimpse believes that independent travelers, particularly those who spend significant time abroad, have a unique and often overlooked opportunity to effect positive change around the world. This begins with bearing witness to place, people, culture, and especially the stories and struggles that might otherwise go unrecorded.

The main focus of Glimpse is the Correspondents Program, which provides travelers, students, and aspiring journalists with a professional platform–including stipends, community support, and one-on-one editorial training–for publishing journalistic work based on their travels abroad.

The Fall 2010 Glimpse Program is now officially open to applicants. To qualify for the program you must be:

  • between the ages of 18 and 36
  • living, working, volunteering, or studying outside of your home country for at least 10 weeks

Correspondents will receive the following benefits:

  • $600 stipend
  • One on one support from a team of professional editors
  • Guaranteed publication in and Matador
  • Community support and promotion of your project to high-profile editors, schools, and media outlets

Please visit the Correspondents page, where you can read more about the program, check the profiles and work of past Correspondents, and also apply.

    Who wouldn’t want to sign up for this? I’d sign up for it, but I missed the cut-off age by one year. Oh well! You can stretch $600 depending on what country you’re in because you know it will be cheaper than the U.S.

      That’s actually a great question: why the age cut-off? Why 36? What about those people who are just now, at age 76 or 86, getting around to making the most of their youth?

  • Leah Petersen

    Neat! What a great opportunity. Applying now :)

  • Alaina

    This is such a great opportunity! I applied for the Spring 2010 cycle and didn’t get it, but I’ll probably try my luck again for Fall 2010.
