Reporting fellowships to US-Mexico border available [Worldwide]

Posted on October 09, 2018

Deadline: 

October 28, 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 Feb. 22 to March 14, 2019. Fellows will begin their trip in Mexico City, where they will complete a comprehensive security training and an orientation. They will then depart for six days of reporting in Tijuana with the opportunity to report from Mexicali, Ensenada and San Diego, followed by seven days of reporting based in Ciudad Juárez with the opportunity to report from El Paso and Las Cruces.

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 is Oct. 28.
