Call for Applications: Reporting Fellowship

Both trips will take place February 1-16, 2018, which includes travel dates. All Fellows will begin their trip in Mexico City, Mexico, where they will complete a four-day, comprehensive security training and an orientation about Latin America and Adelante focus countries from February 2-5. Fellows then depart for a nine-day in-country independent reporting from San Pedro Sula, Honduras or Guatemala City, Guatemala, where they will have the opportunity to network with in-country journalists, collaborate with international peers, and access a wide range of sources and sites relevant to their reporting.

The IWMF reserves the right to change reporting locations based on the real-time security situation in both locations. The feasibility of day trips outside the base locations will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and determined by IWMF security protocols.
