Global Integrity is an international NGO with offices in the US and South Africa. The organization champions transparent and accountable government by producing innovative research and technologies that inform, connect, and empower civic, private, and public reformers who seek more open societies.
Global Integrity is offering a scholarship for an African journalist (based in Africa) to attend an international investigative journalism conference Holding Power to Account from June 13-15, 2014 in Winnipeg, Canada. For more information on the conference, organized by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and the University of Winnipeg, go to: http://winnipeg2014.com/.
The scholarship covers the flight from the reporter’s home country in Africa to the conference, plus hotel and a per diem to cover meals and transportation.
If the journalist needs a visa to visit Canada, Global Integrity and the conference organizers will provide a supporting letter. However, if the visa is denied for any reason or the chosen journalist has not requested it within one week being notified of their selection, the scholarship will be offered to another reporter.
For more information, see: http://www.globalintegrity.org/posts/scholarship-to-upcoming-investigative-journalism-conference-in-canada/.
To apply, fill out the form at this address: https://www.globalintegrity.org/job/general/. Applicants must explain in no more than 4-5 paragraphs how participating in the conference could make a difference in their journalism career or enable the reporting of a story they are working on, or wish to work on.
Applications must be received by April 13, 2014 to be considered.
