Nigerian reporters and investigative journalists can apply for a fellowship and be eligible for a reporting grant.

Gatefield Impact is accepting applications for its inaugural Pro-Health Policy Journalism Fellowship.

Selected fellows will create feature and editorial pieces on Nigeria’s sugar-sweetened beverage tax and policies.

Ten reporters and investigative journalists will be selected to participate in the six-month program which begins in September.

Fellows will receive a grant of US$1,000 (NGN415,000) each to support logistics required to participate in fellowship activities, including the production of at least one long-form feature piece.

The deadline is Aug. 22.
