Fellowship funds reporting on Sub-Saharan Africa [Worldwide]

Journalists who want to report on energy access and poverty can apply for this fellowship.

Discourse Media, with financial support from the Waterloo Global Science Initiative (WGSI), is accepting applications for the Access to Energy Journalism Fellowship (AEJF).

The Access to Energy Journalism Fellowship (AEJF) is a fellowship opportunity aimed at enabling deep, critical reporting on energy poverty globally. We are looking for four reporters who want to tell stories that are deeply rooted in people’s lived experiences in sub-Saharan Africa. These stories should shed light on how different countries in the region are grappling with energy issues in a time of climate change, and what that might mean for the future.

Both staff reporters and freelancers must have a written agreement from an editor at a publication to publish the content they produce.

The deadline is Dec. 7.
