ADH 2022 Community Journalism Fellowship Programme for Nigerian Journalists

This is the second call for applications for Community Journalism Fellowship Programme. We are especially interested in applications that aim to produce journalism focused on potential solutions with lasting impact towards effective public service delivery, grassroot development and improving the quality of life. 

Community journalism holds the key to bridging the wide gap between Nigeria’s urban and rural areas with news, information, education and development, as most of the issues are underreported by the mainstream media, community journalists often turn the spotlight on them. This fellowship program will support community journalists with grants, capacity development and tools to produce in-depth data-driven stories that are investigative in nature on issues affecting communities in different parts of the country.

The programme will prioritize stories deep-diving into community health challenges, causes of hunger and extreme poverty, and more importantly stories of showing structural barriers women and girls face.The ADH Community Journalism Fellowship (ACJF) is an initiative of Orodata Science whose mission is to continue to democratize data, and knowledge towards solutions that impact the lives of millions.
