Deadline: 31 July 2022

The African Investigative Journalism Conference (AIJC) offers a limited number of fellowships for participation in this three-day celebration of the continent’s investigative reporting. This year the conference will return to a face-to-face event in Johannesburg, Oct 31 – Nov 2 and will offer inspiring talks, engagement, networking and cutting-edge training in a range of skills.

The conference will be in English and French. More information at www.aijc.africa

Fellowships are open to journalists with a proven track record in investigative journalism who want to develop their skills and network with their colleagues.

The Fellowship will cover flights to Johannesburg, airport transfers, accommodation in single rooms, transport to and from the conference, meals and conference fees. It does not cover home-country transport, visa costs, personal in-country transport and hotel incidentals.

Fellows will be asked to produce at least one piece of content arising out of the conference.
