The Douglas Tweedale Memorial Fellowship

Over the years, journalists have improved their investigative reporting skills through the Douglas Tweedale Memorial Fellowship. Some participants have focused on immigration, environment, science and technology or business reporting skills.

For the 2023 fellowship, ICFJ is pleased to continue the legacy of the program by offering training and support to Latin American journalists, focused on fact-checking and best practices for fighting disinformation. The fellowship will allow journalists in the region to enhance their skills and gain practical knowledge to apply within their own newsrooms.
