Graduate trainee program for women in media [Africa]

Posted on Mar 18, 2022 in Journalism Basics

Early-career women journalists in Africa, 26 years or younger, are eligible for a trainee program.

African Women in Media (AWiM) is offering its Media Graduate Trainee Program. AWiM’s aim is to impact positively the way media functions in relation to women.

The trainee program seeks four women who have recently graduated from a media-related course within the last two years to experience a challenging eight-month development program.

The trainees will receive editorial coaching to produce gender angle stories and develop stories for bylines on AWiMNews. They will also spend two months each in four critical areas of AWiM’s work.

Trainees will receive a US$450 monthly stipend.

The program begins in May.

The application deadline is April 5.
