Posted on December 22, 2017

Deadline: 

January 10, 2018

Journalists based Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates can apply for this program.

The Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN), in cooperation with the Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism (ARIJ), has launched Journalism Fellowships to Investigate Migration, Labor Issues in Gulf Countries.

The fellowship will begin with a three-day workshop during the last week of February 2018 in Amman, Jordan. Participants will then be mentored by an editor for six months to produce two stories digging into issues involving forced labor, immigrant workers or migration abuses. They are expected to publish their stories by the end of the program in August 2018.

Fellows will have access to GIJN resources, including its global network of experts, on following the money, people and supply chains.

The organizers will provide airfare and hotel to attend the workshop as well as mentoring by outside editors.

In addition, the two journalists submitting the most impressive stories will receive travel grants to attend the 2019 Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Hamburg, Germany.

The deadline is Jan. 10, 2018.
