International Women’s Media Foundation organizes trip to South Sudan, Uganda [Worldwide]

Deadline: DECEMBER 04, 2017

Women journalists with at least three years of experience and excellent English skills can apply for a reporting trip.

The International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF) is accepting applications for a trip to South Sudan and Uganda as part of the African Great Lakes Reporting Initiative. The trip will take place March 14 to 31, 2018.

The IWMF will select teams of two women journalists for a cross-border reporting trip focused on regional migration.

Fellows will begin their trip in Nairobi, Kenya, where they will complete an orientation and Hostile Environments and First Aid Training (HEFAT). Then, they will depart for 10 days in-country reporting, where they will have the opportunity to network with other journalists, report independently and collaboratively, and gain access to sources and sites related to their reporting.

The IWMF pays for fellowship-related expenses including travel, lodging, meals and fixers/interpreters unless the fellow’s news organization wishes to assume these costs.

The deadline to apply is Dec. 4.
