ICFJ seeks Knight fellows [Worldwide]

Posted on Feb 14, 2020 in Digital Journalism

The ICFJ Knight Fellowships, the flagship program of the International Center for Journalists, seek project proposals from news innovators for a one- to two-year working, paid Fellowship.

ICFJ Knight Fellows are doers. They are creative, entrepreneurial journalists or technologists who have identified a problem that needs solving in their own country/region--and have a great idea for how to fix it. The goal: to improve news and information in the public interest.

Fellows also have a passion for spreading the best ideas and practices across borders to people who are tackling similar challenges.

In this round of Fellowship applications, ICFJ is interested in hearing from news innovators with the best new ideas for:

  • combating misinformation/disinformation
  • engaging communities
  • reporting & telling stories in innovative ways
  • using mobile to reach new audiences
