The Alicia Patterson Foundation has awarded one-year fellowship grants of $35,000 each to three photojournalists and five writers to pursue their independent projects.

The 3 photojournalists are Jon Anderson, Stephen Ferry and Teru Kuwayama. Anderson is working on his project, “Cana Brava: The Plight of the Braceros on the Sugar Plantations of the Dominican Republic,” Ferry will complete his “Terror and Civic Resistance in Colombia: Lessons from a Forgotten War,” and Kuwayama, will use his grant to finish his proposal, “No Man’s Land: Survival at the Ends of Frontier,” a project on Afghanistan.

Five other fellowships were awarded to writers: freelancer Alison Bass of Massachussets; freelancer Matthew Dallek of Washington, D.C.; Chris Davenport, a staff writer at The Washington Post; Tom Knudsen, a staff writer at The Sacramento Bee; and freelancer Miriam Pawel of Pasadena, Calif.

The Alicia Patterson Foundation Fellowship was founded in 1965 in honor of the late editor and publisher of Newsday, and is awarded to journalists who are working on significant projects.
