About OpenDemocracy Investigative Journalism Fellowship 2020
The Investigative Journalism Fellowship is a six-month full time fellowship focused on sexual and reproductive health issues. The 2020 edition will start on March 2020. Fellows will work closely with OpenDemocracy editors on investigating the health impacts of organised opposition to women’s and LGBTIQ rights across the world.
What you stand to gain
The fellow will be paid a stipend of $2,100 per month and will be expected to dedicate 40 hours a week to research, reporting, planning and other tasks for at least two major investigative projects.
Throughout, they will receive ongoing mentorship on health reporting and how to plan and execute impactful investigations. They will also be invited to attend special training workshops.
OpenDemocracy is looking for applications from journalists with some experience in health or science reporting who are interested in developing their skills in this area while working on impactful investigations.
As this is a specialist fellowship, Fellows will get more out of this opportunity if they have at least 3-5 years of previous work experience
The fellow can be based anywhere in the world with reliable internet access though we particularly encourage applications from women and LGBTIQ people living in sub-Saharan Africa as well as Central Asia, Eastern Europe, and the South Caucasus, which are regions where Tracking the Backlash is expanding.
