The Global Journalism Fellowship program aims to support approximately 20 experienced journalists and guide them toward enhancing journalistic values that prioritize accuracy, impartiality, and objectivity. The program will contribute to the enhancement of journalists’ skills. The selected fellows will have the opportunity to attend in-person and remote mentoring sessions and participate in fieldwork to train them in practicing “journalism” and improve their ability to produce journalistic content related to societal issues.

The Journalism Fellowship seeks to adopt a new concept that educates participants about its principles and trains journalists in the necessary skills to have a meaningful impact in the field of professional journalism.
