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.

    Georgian journalists have a chance to travel to the United States next year to hone their multimedia skills and deepen their knowledge of the latest digital trends and tools.

    Participants from Georgia attend 2011 ICFJ workshop on using social media to improve reporting, held at the Phillip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland.

    Eighteen journalists will be selected for this two-pronged program, which will include a 16-day study tour to four U.S. cities where participants will attend training sessions, meetings and site visits that will expose them to cutting-edge digital tools, skills and methods.
