- Participation in bi-monthly virtual newsrooms on election reporting.
- Production of four conflict-sensitive election stories.
- Editorial and technical support.
Travel expenses to attend in-person training and a contribution towards connectivity packages to facilitate the production will be covered by the organizers.
Selected participants will work under the supervision of a senior journalist who will act as fellowship editor during the fellowship term. During the fellowship program (August 2023- October 2024), each fellow will be expected to produce four stories for publication or broadcast in media organizations in the pre and post-election cycle.
Journalists with experience of at least three years and an interest in investigative reporting particularly election coverage are encouraged to apply.
