IWMF offers reporting fellowships to Mexico, Colombia [Worldwide]

Posted on Feb 18, 2019 in Investigative Journalism

Women-identifying and non-binary journalists with at least three years of experience can apply for a reporting fellowship.

The International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF) is organizing Adelante (Moving Forward), a five-year reporting initiative that aims to amplify the voices of women journalists in Latin America and strengthen their professional development, impact and safety.

The next group of fellows will travel to Florencia, Colombia or Nogales, Mexico May 16 to 26. Fellows will begin their trip on May 11 in Mexico City, where they will complete a Hostile Environment and First Aid Training (HEFAT) course. One group will then depart for 10 days of reporting in Nogales, focusing on the U.S.-Mexico border, while the other will cover underreported issues in Colombia.

The IWMF pays for fellowship-related expenses including travel, lodging, meals and fixers/interpreters unless a selected journalist’s news organization wishes to assume these costs.

The deadline is Feb. 23.
