Attention journalists from the Global South!

Do you have a fascination for in-depth reporting and a longing to boost the voices of those influenced by humanitarian predicaments? The New Humanitarian (TNH) is proposing a life-changing chance through its Humanitarian Reporting Fellowship.

This six-month program will engage you in the soul of TNH’s global newsroom, readying you with the skills to craft compelling stories that reverberate with a global audience. Starting in May 2024, you’ll:

  • Gain expertise in documenting, framing, and presenting local stories for a worldwide forum.
  • Experiment with multimedia procedures and formulate clever formats that mirror your own community.
  • Contribute original work across various platforms, both short- and long-format.

We’re particularly interested in journalists from the Middle East to join our fellows this year, but applications are welcome from all regions of the Global South. We believe in amplifying diverse voices that offer rich, localized perspectives on humanitarian issues.

What sets this fellowship apart?

  • Competitive stipend: USD 2,500 monthly, plus travel and expenses.
  • Mentorship and collaboration: Work alongside experienced TNH journalists and develop your own unique reporting style.
  • Travel and production support: Tell the stories that matter most from your local community and bring them to a global stage.

Who should apply?

  • Seasoned journalists (3-5 years of experience) with a proven track record covering humanitarian cases in their home country (Middle East, Asia, Latin America, or Africa).
  • Strong English communication skills.
  • Dependable internet access and the knowledge to thrive in a dynamic, online newsroom.
  • A commitment to innovative storytelling that puts the human face back in humanitarian reporting.
  • Availability to work full-time during West Africa Standard Time (Central European Time) business hours.

The application deadline is March 31st, 2024! Don’t miss the opportunity to promote your career and make a real distinction.
