Al Jazeera offers journalism fellowship [MENA]

Posted on Nov 23, 2021 in Journalism Basics

Journalists and media researchers can apply for this fellowship in Doha, Qatar.

Al Jazeera Media Institute is accepting applications for the fifth edition of the Al Jazeera Fellowship, which seeks to encourage media and journalism research and to provide fellows with the opportunity to learn through practical experience within the Al Jazeera Media Network.

During the two-month program, fellows will have the opportunity to write a 7,000-word research paper on selected fields of journalism, including digital journalism, media and democracy, journalism ethics, and the challenges facing media organizations.

The first phase of the hybrid program will be completed remotely, and will require the fellows to submit a research plan and an introduction to their research papers. The second phase, which will be completed at Al Jazeera headquarters in Doha, will allow the fellows to continue their research until the final submission of the paper.

For Arabic native speakers, having a working knowledge of English will be considered as an advantage. Non-Arabic speakers must be fluent in English.

The deadline is Dec. 15.
