Attention journalists from the Global South!

Do you have a passion for in-depth reporting and a desire to elevate the voices of those impacted by humanitarian crises? The New Humanitarian (TNH) is offering a life-changing opportunity through its Humanitarian Reporting Fellowship.

This six-month program will immerse you in the heart of TNH’s global newsroom, equipping you with the skills to craft compelling stories that resonate with a global audience. Starting in May 2024, you’ll:

We’re particularly interested in journalists from the Middle East to join our fellows this year, but applications are welcome from all regions of the Global South. We believe in amplifying diverse voices that offer rich, localized perspectives on humanitarian issues.

What sets this fellowship apart?

  • Competitive stipend: USD 2,500 monthly, plus travel and expenses.
  • Mentorship and collaboration: Work alongside experienced TNH journalists and develop your own unique reporting style.
  • Travel and production support: Tell the stories that matter most from your local community and bring them to a global stage.

Who should apply?

  • Seasoned journalists (3-5 years of experience) with a proven track record covering humanitarian issues in their home country (Middle East, Asia, Latin America, or Africa).
  • Strong English communication skills.
  • Reliable internet access and the ability to thrive in a dynamic, online newsroom.
  • A commitment to innovative storytelling that puts the human face back in humanitarian reporting.
  • Availability to work full-time during West Africa Standard Time (Central European Time) business hours.
