Early-career women journalists based in Kenya can apply for an investigative reporting fellowship.

openDemocracy is offering its Africa investigative reporting fellowship, which provides resources to sharpen a journalist's investigative and multimedia skills.

The selected fellow will join the Tracking the Backlash team, which investigates organized opposition to women’s and LGBTIQ rights across the world.

Throughout the six-month program, the fellow will receive ongoing mentorship and be invited to attend training workshops.

The fellow 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 on women’s and LGBTIQ rights.

The deadline is April 3.
