The United Nations (UN) is now accepting entries for the Reham Al-Farra (RAF) Memorial Journalists Fellowship Program, which will take place from September 16 to October 6, 2018 in New York, in the United States.
The Reham Al-Farra (RAF) Memorial Journalists Fellowship Program, established by the United Nations, provides journalists with an opportunity to gain first-hand experience in the work of the United Nations in New York. It is also an opportunity to meet journalists from other countries and exchange ideas with UN communication professionals.
Since its founding in 1981, the fellowship has been awarded to 581 journalists from 168 countries. Upon completion of the programme, fellows are expected to continue working in journalism and promote better understanding of the United Nations in their home countries. The programme does not provide basic skills training, as all fellows are working journalists.
The fellowship is open to journalists from around the world, typically selecting about 15 candidates, each from a different country. Participants will receive airfare and a daily allowance.
