Reporting fellowships to El Salvador and US/Mexico border available [Worldwide]

Posted on March 28, 2018

Deadline: 

April 02, 2018

Women journalists with at least three years of experience can apply for a reporting fellowship.

The International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF) is organizing Adelante (Moving Forward), a five-year reporting initiative that aims to amplify the voices of women journalists in Latin America and strengthen their professional development, impact and safety.

The next group of fellows will travel June 13 to 28. All fellows will begin their trip in Mexico City, where they will complete a comprehensive security training and an orientation. One group of journalists will then cover rural security and development in San Salvador, El Salvador, while the other group will focus on trade and its human impact from the U.S./Mexico border: Laredo and Eagle Pass, Texas.

The IWMF pays for fellowship-related expenses including travel, lodging, meals and fixers/interpreters unless a selected journalist’s news organization wishes to assume these costs.

The deadline to apply has been extended to April 2.
