Knight International Journalism Fellowship open


Media professionals with strong business and entrepreneurial skills can apply for a 21-month fellowship.

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) is accepting applications for the Knight International Journalism Fellowship in Eastern Europe and Eurasia.

Based in the region, the fellow will develop long-term sustainability plans and better management practices for a network of media organizations and investigative reporting centers in 20 countries that are members of the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP).

The program’s goal is to help generate additional and innovative sources of revenue that put these organizations and centers on the path to greater sustainability.

Candidates must have strong business and entrepreneurial skills. Experience in managing startups is highly desirable. Fluency in English is required, and fluency in regional languages is a plus.

Other qualifications include: digital media knowledge and experience; excellent organizational skills; an understanding of how to build international audiences and grow online business in a cross-border context; experience in journalism and media management; interest in investigative reporting and online journalism; and an ability to work in difficult economic and political environments.

The fellowship covers housing, travel costs, professional expenses and a stipend.

The orientation week starts in April 2014.
