With the support of our sponsors and partners, the 2023 Global Investigative Journalism Conference is offering more than 150 fellowships to both established and promising journalists in developing and transitioning countries, and for journalists from disenfranchised communities, to participate in this prestigious event. Competition is keen, so you need to convince us that you will make great use of the training that GIJC23 offers.
To stay up-to-date on the fellowships, the global conference, and other opportunities from GIJN, you can subscribe to our email newsletter, the GIJN Bulletin.
- Open to full-time print, online, television, video, radio, documentary, and multimedia journalists in developing or transitioning countries;
- Experience in investigative or data journalism a plus;
- Sorry, Western journalists based overseas are not eligible. For a full list of eligible countries, please check out this link.
Following the conference, fellows are required to either produce a story directly related to #GIJC23 or give a presentation based on the knowledge you gained at #GIJC23 to your colleagues or the journalism community at-large. Detailed guidelines and examples here.
You’ll need a working knowledge of English, as most conference panels and workshops will be conducted in English. Please submit your fellowship application in English.
