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 the last two trips as part of the African Great Lakes Reporting Initiative.  The trips will take place Nov. 1 to 17.

One group will travel to Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), while the other group will go to the Central African Republic (CAR).

Fellows will begin their trip in Nairobi, Kenya, where they will complete a comprehensive security training and orientation. Then, they will depart to in-country reporting for 10 days, 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 is Aug. 21.
