News Corp Media Fellowship for Russian Journalists


Working with ICFJ, News Corp will bring two Russian journalists to London, to spend 28 days at The Times of London and at The Wall Street Journal London Bureau.

To complement the four-week program, ICFJ will design a three-day orientation in London, which will prepare the fellows for their time in the newsrooms. During the program they will have the opportunity to work alongside colleagues, experiencing how the newsrooms operate and the digital transformations affecting journalism. Appointments with key journalists, media experts and technologists will also be part of the Fellowship.

English-speaking Russian journalists, videographers, newsroom editors, bloggers and journalists from all areas of expertise are welcome to apply.
