Women journalists and writers in Nigeria, Ghana and Senegal can participate in a fellowship on gender-based violence.
The Africa Women Journalism Project, an initiative supported by the International Center for Journalists in partnership with the Ford Foundation West Africa, is accepting applications for its West Africa Gender-based Violence Fellowship. The program seeks to increase the capacity of women journalists to understand the complexity of gender-based violence and exploitation and empower them to cover gender-related issues.
Sixty journalists will participate in the first phase of the program and 12 will be shortlisted for a nine-month fellowship, which runs January to September 2022.
The fellowship includes on-the-job mentoring and editorial sessions to produce high-quality journalism, training sessions focused on gender-based violence and financial support and assistance.
The 12 selected fellows will receive a stipend of US$150 per month.
The applications deadline is Nov. 5.
