Feb 15th, 2014

Journalists who are 25 to 35 years old and from developing countries can apply for a fellowship to report on the United Nations.

The fellowship, sponsored by the Dag Hammarskjöld Scholarship Fund for Journalists, gives participants the opportunity to report on international affairs during the 69th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. Fellows will make professional contacts, interact with seasoned journalists and gain a broader perspective on global issues.

The fellowship is open to journalists 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 journalist applications for 2013 from nations selected in 2013: Brazil, Kenya, Pakistan and Turkey. Journalists from these countries may apply in 2015.

The fellowship includes travel, accommodations and a per diem allowance.

The application deadline is March 31.
