DEADLINE: JANUARY 1, 2024 — The United Nations Foundation is accepting applications for its 2024 Polio Press Fellowship for Individual Reporting.
This fellowship is for journalists interested in reporting stories on polio eradication throughout the world.
Up to $10,000 will be awarded to about six fellows to cover reporting costs.
Fellows will participate in an online polio training session and receive funding to travel to a country at the forefront of the polio eradication effort to gather stories and interviews from health care workers, community members, families, and health authorities.
Preference will be given to reporters interested in travelling to Democratic Republic of the Congo, Nigeria, Mozambique, Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen.
Interested reporters are required to submit an application, which includes a project proposal and budget. The UN will consider projects across all media platforms (including print, photography, audio, and video).
The deadline for applications is January 1, 2024.
