The Dag Hammarskjöld Scholarship Fund annually offers fellowships to young journalists from developing nations to report on United Nations’ proceedings for news media in their home countries. Applications will soon be accepted for 2009.

Applicants must be full-time, professional journalists between 25 and 35 years old, be employed by a recognized print, radio, television, or internet media organization, and have a good working knowledge of English. Additionally, applicants must come from a developing nation in Africa, Asia, South America or the Caribbean.

The fellowship will provide: round-trip airfare to New York; accommodations; health insurance for the duration of the fellowship, and a daily allowance to cover food and other necessities.
