The Dag Hammarskjöld Fund for Journalists is now accepting applications from journalists in developing countries to cover the United Nations General Assembly in September, 2012. The opportunity is open to radio, television, print, and online journalists. Applicants must work full-time for a media organization and have their employer’s approval to spend up to two months in New York, U.S.A.
Applicants must have a passion for international affairs and want to better their audience’s understanding of the United Nations. Four journalists are selected each year.
The Fund is not considering applications from China, Ethiopia, India, and Nigeria this year, in order to rotate recipient countries. Journalists from these countries can apply in 2013.
The application deadline is Friday, March 30, 2012.
