DEADLINE: AUGUST 25, 2021 —Journalists and digital storytellers from Nigeria and Sudan can apply for investigative fellowships to tackle religious intolerance.
The fellowships are part of the In The Name of Religion initiative spearheaded locally by Code for Africa (CfA) in Nigeria and the Ayin Network in Sudan, in partnership with the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ).
Applicants will partake in a free six-week online course on data-driven forensic research techniques for analysing online extremism and militancy, along with investigative journalism skills for producing compelling multimedia storytelling about religious freedom and tolerance.
The course will be followed by 10 weeks of one-on-one mentorship to help participants produce award-winning solutions journalism.
The best story pitches during the course will receive cash grants to cover reporting costs.
Applicants must be established journalists or digital storytellers (such as a blogger or social media content creator) with a minimum of one year track-record in journalism and reportage.
Interested applicants must be based in either Nigeria or Sudan, and must be fluent in English in Nigeria or Arabic in Sudan.
The deadline for applications is 25th August 2021.
