This fellowship is sponsored by the Dag Hammarskjöld Scholarship Fund for Journalists. It offers participants the opportunity to report on international affairs during the 70th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, U.S. Fellows will make professional contacts, interact with seasoned journalists and gain a broader perspective on global issues.
Four fellowships are open to radio, television, print and web journalists who are 25 to 35 years old and currently working full-time in developing countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.
In an effort to rotate recipient countries, the fellowship will not consider applications for 2015 from Nigeria, where a fellow was selected in 2014. Nigerian journalists may apply in 2016.
The fellowship includes travel, accommodation and a per diem allowance.
The application deadline is March 16, 2015.
