Journalists who are interested in using data to tell stories about women in Africa can apply for a fellowship.
Code for Africa (CfA) and WACC’s Who Makes The News program are partnering to offer WanaData fellowships. The program will use data to explore women’s representation and voices in the media including key challenges, barriers and opportunities.
The fellowships will teach journalists basic data journalism skills and help those with data experience expand their skills by taking on more ambitious projects.
Up to six fellows will receive a US$1,000 project grant each, plus intensive one-on-one mentoring and technical support from a large team of data analysts, digital designers, software engineers, multimedia producers and veteran journalists.
Eligible journalists must be fluent in English and based in Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania or Uganda.
The application deadline is Nov. 12.
