Radio Free Europe/ Radio Liberty is now accepting applications for the 2017-2018 Václav Havel Journalism Fellowship.
The purpose of the Fellowship is to support aspiring journalists to pursue their profession in support of pluralism.
The Fellowship accepts applications from journalists in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine, and the Russian Federation.
Selected Fellows are placed with a language service in the company’s Prague headquarters, where they receive on-the-job training and mentoring while working alongside RFE/RL’s seasoned professionals. The program equips them with cutting edge multimedia skills, while involving them in the daily editorial discussions that inform a professional, independent press. It helps position them to be both standard-bearers of their profession and leaders in their communities, on-line, on air, and in the world.
Completed applications must be submitted in English by May 31, 2017.
