    The Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP) Secretariat is inviting young journalists to be part of, to contribute to, and to report from its 2nd High Level Meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on February 12-13, 2014.

    Up to 10 young journalists will be selected to receive scholarships to work under the guidance of the AEEP communications team at the conference. They will have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of Africa-EU cooperation in the energy sector, and the challenges African countries continue to face in delivering energy services to their populations.

    While at the conference, the young journalists will report on the conference sessions through press releases, social media channels, video clips and interviews, and the official conference website. In addition, the journalists can submit stories, interviews, and reports to their own countries and media outlets.

    The scholarship includes a pre-conference training plus travel and accommodation expenses.

    Applicants must be under 35 years of age, based in Africa or the EU, and have at least three years of experience working as a print or online journalist, photojournalist or video journalist. Fluency in English is required, and fluency in French is an advantage.
