Are you a female journalist with a passion for humanitarian work? From November 5-18, two groups of six women journalists will report from CAR on issues related to the impact of humanitarian aid and from Rwanda on technology and economic development.
All Fellows will begin their trip in Nairobi, Kenya, where they will complete comprehensive security training and an orientation about the African Great Lakes region.
The IWMF arranges travel and in-country logistics for all Fellows.
The IWMF also covers fellowship-related costs within the framework of the reporting trip including travel, lodging, meals, and fixers/interpreters, unless a selected journalist’s news organization wishes to assume these costs.
Visa costs will also be covered, but fellows living outside the U.S. are responsible for procuring all necessary visas.
Application closes August 29, 2017.
