Fellowships open to freelance journalists [Worldwide]
Freelance journalists worldwide can apply for a fellowship.
The University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs invites specialized freelancers to apply for one of 15 Fellowships in Global Journalism. The university is seeking top individuals with advanced knowledge of a specialty, who wish to cover that specialty as full-time or part-time reporters for media around the world.
Fellows will spend September 2013 to April 2014 reporting on their respective beats as stringers for major media around the world, while being mentored by leading journalists. Participants will learn editorial disciplines and freelance tradecraft to become full-time specialty reporters.
Curriculum topics include broadcast and mobile journalism, investigative journalism, global dynamics and new media platforms. Fellows will also participate in a one-month bootcamp that will aid in the transition from freelancing to full-time reporting.
The application deadline is February 11.
