Featured Programs

  • Sub-Saharan Africa: Strengthening storytelling & audience engagement through data journalism & civic innovation

    Knight International Journalism Fellowships

    A team of ICFJ Knight Fellows is leading ICFJ’s Code for Africa (CfAfrica) data-journalism initiative that is catalyzing African media to deliver ongoing, high-quality news that engages audiences and sparks systemic change around “bread and butter” issues such as health and development. Led by two pan-African Fellows, an audience engagement Fellow, and three in-country Fellows, the initiative is targeting newsrooms in three regional hub countries: Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa. It will expand to include Tanzania in 2016, and will also tap into digital experimentation in newsrooms elsewhere in Africa.

  • Arthur F. Burns Fellowship

    Each year, outstanding media professionals from the United States, Canada and Germany are awarded an opportunity to report from and travel in each other's countries as part of The Arthur F. Burns Fellowship Program. The program offers young journalists, age 40 and under, the opportunity to share professional expertise with their colleagues across the Atlantic while working as "foreign correspondents" for their hometown news organizations.

  • HIV Prevention Reporting Fellowship

    The world has made major progress on HIV, notably in sub-Saharan Africa, where the HIV burden is greatest. Increased access to lifesaving treatment and prevention options has led to a steady decline in AIDS-related deaths and HIV incidence. Efforts are underway to build on these gains and expand access to proven tools, including approaches that protect vulnerable populations by preventing new HIV infections.
