Nancy Andrews, Mustafah Abdulaziz Win Alicia Patterson Foundation Grants

The Alicia Patterson Foundation has named its 2018 fellowships to support in-depth reporting on long-term projects. Two of the eight winners are photographers: Mustafah Abdulaziz of New York City and Nancy Andrews of Pittsburgh. All the fellows are awarded either $40,000 for a 12-month grant or $20,000 for a six-month grant. Information on all eight fellows for 2018 can be found on the Alicia Patterson Foundation website.

The eight fellows were selected by a jury that screened applicants’ lengthy proposals and their past work. Abdulaziz plans to continue his ongoing project, “Water,” which looks at water use and scarcity around the world. Andrews will work on “Necessity or Threat: The Pipeline-Building Boom in Appalachia.” The fellows were chosen by three jurors: Sandy Close, founder, Pacific News Service and New America Media; Ellen Warren, a Chicago Tribune columnist; and Kristal Brent Zook, a Hofstra University journalism professor and a 2005 Alicia Patterson fellow.

The Alicia Patterson fellowships were founded in 1965 in memory of an editor and publisher of Newsday. Among the photographers who have previously won fellowships are Andrea Bruce (2011), Alessandra Sanguinetti (2010), Tomas van Houtryve (2008) and April Saul (2014).
