Applicants in the following countries are eligible: in Latin America: Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Ecuador, Colombia; Western Pacific and South-East Asia: Bangladesh, India, Philippines, China, Vietnam, Malaysia; or Africa: Ethiopia, Ghana, Tanzania, Uganda.

Participants must submit a short proposal, identifying how they wish to implement their independent training, how many journalists they expect to reach, as well as a brief budget proposal outlining expected costs. 

The deadline is Sept. 30.
