It is also an opportunity to meet journalists from other countries and exchange ideas with UN communication professionals. 

The 2017 fellowship will take place Sept. 11 to 29. The program is open to journalists from around the world, typically selecting about 15 candidates, each from a different country. Participants will receive airfare and a daily allowance.
