Opportunity: African Journalists

The Population Reference Bureau* is inviting applications to its new Women’s Edition-Africa program*. Sub-Saharan African women journalists have until the end of January to apply.

The project will bring together senior-level women journalists — editors, reporters, and producers — to examine important topics related to women’s reproductive health and development in a weeklong seminar and study tour  in Africa in April 2017.

PRB will select 10 to 12 women journalists from several low-income countries (journalists in Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia and the democratic republic of the Congo are eligable) to participate.

PRB will cover all seminar expenses, including travel, lodging, and meals. Successful participants from this group will be invited to another seminar/study tour in 2017, when they will be joined by an equal number of women journalists from South Asia.More information and application form.
