The 2023 Global Investigative Journalism Conference is offering 150 fellowships to journalists from developing countries and other disenfranchised places around the world. If you are journalist from a developing country, you are eligible to apply, but understand that there is high competition and you must prove to be good enough in order to be given a fellowship.
- Open to full-time print, online, television, video, radio, documentary, and multimedia journalists in developing or transitioning countries;
- Experience in investigative or data journalism a plus;
- Sorry, Western journalists based overseas are not eligible. For a full list of eligible countries, please check out this link.
After the conference, fellows are obliged to either write an article specifically on #GIJC23 or provide a presentation to your peers or the larger media community based on the knowledge you learned at #GIJC23.
Since the majority of conference panels and workshops will be held in English, you’ll require a basic understanding of the language. Your fellowship application must be submitted in English.
GIJC23 Fellowship Includes
- Round-trip airfare to Gothenburg, Sweden
- Hotel room for four nights
- Transport between Gothenburg-Landvetter Airport and the conference hotel
- Reception dinner
- Breakfast and lunch on conference days
- Award ceremony dinner

NOTE: The fellowship does not include a per diem, visa fees, or transport to and from your home country airport. This is a training conference, and fellows are expected to pay for these costs.
