The Kyoto Prize Journalism Fellowship enables talented journalists to connect with some of the world's leading thinkers by attending the 27th annual Kyoto Prize presentation ceremony, laureate lectures and workshops.

The fellowship covers transportation to Kyoto, Japan, accommodations, and perdiem expenses for Nov. 7 - 14.

The fellowship is available to working journalists and freelance writers based in the United States seeking to further their knowledge and deepen their reporting on technology, science and the arts.

The fellow will have the opportunity to interview the Kyoto Prize laureates -- materials scientist John W. Cahn, astrophysicist Rashid Sunyaev and internationally renowned Kabuki actor Tamasaburo Bando V.

As Japan's highest private award for global achievement, the Kyoto Prize recognizes remarkable professionals who have dedicated their life to bettering society through their work.
