It’s Miller time

The National Press Foundation wants applicants for the 2006-2007 Paul Miller Washington Reporting Fellowships.

“Now in its 20th year, the Paul Miller program has become a valuable rite of passage for DC-based correspondents,” says the NPF. “This monthly series of one-day seminars teaches reporters how to mine the nation’s capital for important local news. Application deadline is June 1.”

The fellowship is designed for regional-media journalists working in D.C. Want to know if it’s worth the trouble of applying? Ask one of the 20 current fellows (only 15 will be chosen this year):
