Climate Tracker, in partnership with Hivos, is seeking to train six amazing African journalists to cover the Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) Forum coming up in Rwanda from May 26 to 28, 2020 through its Investigative Reporting Scholarships.

The scholarship is looking for young journalists from across Africa who want to write incredible stories about the energy challenges in their home country.

The six fellows will receive a fully funded fellowship to travel to Kigali for the event; undergo exclusive training from leading energy experts and journalists; and an investigative story grant to cover energy issues back in their home country – all mentored by the Climate Tracker Team.

The Sustainable Energy for All Forum (SEforALL) will bring together the world’s most renowned energy experts and decision-makers in what is sure to be the premier global meeting on the unique energy challenges facing the continent.
