The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ), in partnership with the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) and Fundação Maria Cecilia Souto Vidigal, is recruiting for 10 Early Childhood Development Reporting Fellows. The goal of the fellowships is to improve news coverage of child health and form a global network of reporters covering this critically-important issue.

Who Can Apply?

The Fellowship is open to journalists covering issues of child health and development for news outlets based in Bangladesh, Brazil, India, Kenya, Nigeria and Tanzania. Journalists from all mediums are encouraged to apply: radio, broadcast, print, and online. An ideal candidate will have previous experience covering early childhood development issues, but journalists who currently cover health or nutrition-related topics and are interested in increasing their coverage of children's issues are welcome to apply.

Successful applicants must be employed by a news outlet or have a commitment to publish/broadcast from a news outlet to participate. Applicants must be proficient in English. Stories submitted may be written in your native language; however, reporting project proposals must be submitted in English.

The Fellowship

This is the third of three groups of fellows that will participate in the program between 2017 and 2019. The fellowship term for this second cohort will run from March 2018 – March 2019.

During the year-long program, the fellows will receive virtual training, mentoring and financial support to produce regular stories on nutrition and early-childhood development, relevant to their home countries.

The program will begin with a virtual orientation (webinar) after which each fellow will be assigned a mentor who will work with them as they produce stories on early childhood development issues. ICFJ will conduct regular webinars during the year of the fellowship.

The program also includes two reporting trips. ICFJ will send all fellows to a country that is implementing a successful and innovative approach to supporting childhood development. The fellows will meet with early childhood development experts in the field and will produce stories with the help of their mentors.

ICFJ and its partners are currently working on selecting the dates and destinations for both trips. ICFJ will cover all of the fellowship expenses.

How to Apply?

To become an ECD Reporting Fellow, candidates must complete a Fellowship application. Applicants should include:

• A resume or CV

• Examples of stories produced on early-childhood development

• A reporting-project proposal that outlines story ideas the Fellow will pursue and a reporting and publishing/broadcasting plan.

Entries must be submitted by 11:59p.m. U.S. Eastern time on Sunday, March 4, 2018. Apply here.
