International Women's Media Foundation organizes trip to South Sudan [Worldwide]

Posted on May 15, 2018

Deadline: 

June 03, 2018

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 a trip to South Sudan as part of the African Great Lakes Reporting Initiative. The trip will take place Aug. 8 to 24.

Fellows will begin their trip in Nairobi, Kenya, where they will complete a comprehensive security training and orientation. Then, they will depart to Juba 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.

Proposals must focus on a story that can be reported in and around Juba.

The deadline is June 3.
