English-speaking journalists based in the MENA region can apply for this fellowship.

The International Center for Journalists and News Corp will bring three journalists from the Middle East and North Africa to New York from Oct. 21 to Nov. 22, to hone their journalistic skills at The Wall Street Journal.

Participants will work across newsroom departments, shadow their American peers and collaborate with them to produce news reports.

ICFJ will design a three-day orientation in Washington, which will prepare the fellows for their time in the newsrooms. The selected journalists will gain a deeper understanding of the tools and resources reshaping the news media, including database reporting, using and creating interactive visualizations and mobile journalism.

Applicants from Egypt, Iraq and Saudi Arabia are particularly encouraged to apply. All travel and fellowship expenses are covered by the program.

The deadline is June 30.
