Posted on Mar 22, 2022 in Investigative Journalism

Early-career journalists from Eurasia countries can apply.

openDemocracy announces a six-month, full-time investigative reporting fellowship.

The fellows will join the Tracking the Backlash team, which investigates organized opposition to women’s and LGBTIQ rights across the world. They should be based in  Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkey, or Ukraine and have reliable internet access.

The organizers particularly encourage applications from women and LGBTIQ candidates working as a journalist for at least 1–2 years.

Participants will be paid a monthly stipend of US$2,100 and be expected to dedicate 40 hours a week to research, reporting, planning, and other tasks for investigative projects. They will receive ongoing mentorship and be invited to attend training workshops.

The deadline is April 3.
