Journalists who are 25 to 35 years old and from developing countries can apply for a fellowship to report on the United Nations from September to November 2020.
The fellowship, sponsored by the Dag Hammarskjöld Scholarship Fund for Journalists, gives participants the opportunity to report on international affairs during the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. Fellows will make professional contacts, interact with seasoned journalists and gain a broader perspective on global issues.
The fellowship is open to journalists working full time in developing countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.
In an effort to rotate recipient countries, the fellowship will not consider journalist applications for 2020 from nations selected in 2019: Egypt, Nigeria, Trinidad and Tobago, and Zimbabwe. Journalists from these countries may apply in 2021.
The fellowship includes travel, accommodations and a per diem allowance.
The application deadline is March 6.
