Media professionals across the MENA region can apply for this program.

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ), in partnership with the Facebook Journalism Project, is organizing a training program that will enable journalists to produce stories that shine a light on life in refugee camps during the coronavirus pandemic.

The program will equip journalists with skills, resources and technical support. Activities begin with an intensive four-week online course in June for 60 selected journalists.

Those who complete the course will be eligible to apply for one of 17 reporting grants up to a maximum of US$1,500 each, in addition to mentorship and guidance.  

The deadline is June 8.
