On behalf of the United Nations Foundation; we are happy to announce that the United Nations Foundation is now accepting applications for our 2024 Polio Press Fellowship. This fellowship is geared towards journalists interested in reporting stories on polio eradication throughout the world. Selected fellows will participate in a virtual polio training session and receive funding to travel to a country at the forefront of the polio eradication effort to gather stories and interviews from health care workers, community members, families, and health authorities.
Funding for this press fellowship was made possible by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Up to six fellows will be awarded up to $10,000 USD each to cover reporting costs. Journalists around the world working with national and international media outlets (either on staff or as a freelancer) are encouraged to apply.
More information and the application are available here and questions can be directed to [email protected].
