Fellowship Opens For Reporting African Land Grab

The Gravitazz Continental Initiative, GCI, and the Forum For African Investigative Reporters, FAIR, are offering fellowships to journalists across Africa who wish to undertake in-depth investigations on land transactions.
Interested reporters are invited to propose an investigation into any important but underreported land deals affecting communities, referred to as ‘land grabbing’, that will expand the knowledge and understanding of the chosen investigative area and stir public debate.
The successful applicants will receive a stipend of $500 USD over 4 months to cover research expenses for three articles each.
Successful reporters will be supported by an advisory team with knowledge in the area of the investigation and may choose to work in any medium or language but articles may be submitted in English.
The deadline for application is June 24th. All entries should be forwarded to media@africalandgrabs.co.za
