Fellowships for journalists from developing nations

Until March 22, young journalists from developing nations can apply for the Dag Hammarskjöld Scholarship Fund.

Fellows are based in New York for about 10 weeks and report on United Nations’ proceedings for news media in their home countries.

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. It will begin in mid-September and extend to late November.

Questions about the program, eligibility and application process should be directed to info@unjournalismfellowship.org.
