INDIAN FULBRIGHT ALUMNA RECEIVES AN OPEN SOCIETY FOUNDATION FELLOWSHIP FROM GEORGE SOROS FOUNDATION

Chitrangada Choudhury, a 2010 Fulbright-Nehru Masterís Fellow for Leadership Development, has been granted an Open Society Foundation Fellowship from George Soros Foundation. She will be using this year long fellowship to analyze resource conflicts in central India's forested and mineral-rich districts and how corporations and state authorities can be made more accountable and transparent to local citizens.

 

She has worked in the newsrooms of two leading Indian national dailies, The Indian Express and The Hindustan Times, as well as the Guardian US. She has also written for publications like the Columbia Journalism Review, Caravan, Outlook and Mint. Her reportage has probed power and marginality in a country in flux, and been named for national and international reporting awards, including the Sanskriti Award and the Lorenzo Natali Journalism Prize.
