DEADLINE: Douglas Tweedale Memorial Fellowship

Event Date: 
August 22, 2021

Over the years, the biennial Douglas Tweedale Memorial Fellowship has helped Latin American journalists improve their investigative reporting skills, either generally or in a specialty reporting area such as immigration, environment, science and technology or business, through a two-week long program.

For the 2021 fellowship, ICFJ is partnering with the Self-Investigation to provide a course focused on mental health, stress management and digital wellbeing.

This course will help you better manage your stress, improve your relationship with technology and increase your resiliency. Making these positive changes in your daily life will also make you a better manager and newsroom leader.

Fellows will meet weekly via Zoom and sessions will last one our, though inaugural and concluding sessions will last 1.5 hours. Some fellows will have the option of receiving personal coaching sessions during the course.

The fellowship is designed for Latin American newsroom managers who are fluent in Spanish and proficient in English, and who are working at a news organization in the region. On a case by case basis, Latin American journalists residing in Spain and working on Latin American issues will be considered. Spanish journalists residing in Spain and working on Latin American issues may also be considered. Past Tweedale Fellowship recipients are strongly encouraged to apply.
