WanaData fellowships available for data-driven projects on gender issues

DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 12, 2021 —Journalists who are interested in using data to tell stories about women in Africa can apply for WanaData fellowships.

Applicants must be established journalists or digital storytellers (such as bloggers or social media content creators) with a minimum of one year experience in the media.
