APPLICATIONS INVITED FOR UNITED NATIONS JOURNALISM FELLOWSHIPS


The Dag Hammarskjöld Scholarship Fund for Journalists is now accepting applications from professional journalists from developing countries for its 2009 Fellowship Program. The application deadline is Friday, March 20, 2009.

The Fellowships are available to radio, television, print and web journalists, age 25 to 35, from developing countries who are interested in coming to New York to report on international affairs during the 64th session of the United Nations General Assembly. The Fellowships will begin in mid-September and extend to late November and will include the cost of travel and accommodations in New York, as well as a per diem allowance.

The Fellowship Program is open to journalists who are native to one of the developing countries in Africa, Asia, South America and the Caribbean, and are currently working full-time for a bona fide media organization in a developing nation. Applicants must demonstrate an interest in and commitment to international affairs and to conveying a better understanding of the United Nations to their readers and audiences. They must also have approval from their media organizations to spend up to two months in New York to report from the United Nations.

The journalists who are awarded Fellowships are given the incomparable opportunity to observe international diplomatic deliberations at the United Nations, to make professional contacts that will serve them for many years to come, to interact with seasoned journalists from around the world, and to gain a broader perspective and understanding of matters of global concern. Many past Fellows have risen to prominence in their professional and countries.

This is the 48th year the Dag Hammarskjöld Scholarship Fund has sponsored the Fellowship Program for Journalists. The program is administered on a volunteer basis by journalists at the United Nations, who raise money from foundations, corporations and diplomatic missions.

Martin,
Naungana nawe kwa oni lako la kutambua umuhimu wa uandishi wa habari.Maana tunapozungumzia mihimili ya nchi, ukiachilia bunge, mahakama na utawala, (executive)...media imekuja kuchukua nafasi ya nne kwa umuhimu wake.

Sasa kwa waandishi wa habari, endapo watakuwa wanakomaa na hizi opportunities, hakika naamini kabisa mambo yao binafsi yatakuwa shwari kwa kujiendeleza kielimu, kiuzioefu, na itakua ni faida kwa wengi amabo watabahatika kusoma kazi zako utakazoandika.

Nawasihi watanzania tuwe na desturi ya kuthubutu na sio suala la kuanza kuogopa na kusema tayari wameshachaguana wa kwenda ktk opportunity fulani.

Application kama hii haigharimu kitu, utakuta mtu ana degree yake toka pale IJMC, na anaandikia gazeti fulani habari zake, lakini workshop kama hizi hataki kwenda, then anataka baadae aje kuwa director au editor wa gazeti.

Maoni yangu wandugu
