WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE SAFARICOM BUSINESS JOURNALISTS FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM 2016

Eligibility Requirements

The Fellowship Program is open to full-time editorial employees of newspapers, magazines and broadcast news organisations and freelance journalists.
Applicants must have at least four years' experience. Though some attempt is made to achieve a diversity of backgrounds, the affiliation of applicants is not a factor in the selection process.
Journalists from nationally known organisations will not be given preference over those from smaller regional media.
The chief criterion for selection is demonstrated journalistic excellence. While essays and letters of recommendation are important parts of the application, the greatest weight is given to work samples.

Application Procedure

Submit a completed application form along with:

  • A professional resume
  • An essay- less than 1,000 words on a business or economic trend
  • Four original samples of work produced during the last five years
  • College or university transcript(s)
  • Three letters of reference from persons in a position to comment on your professional performance and potential for covering business and economic news

The program permits fellows to make whatever arrangements are deemed appropriate. Though applicants' employers, except under unusual circumstances, should submit a letter supporting the application, applicants are not required to obtain formal employer approval.
All materials, including letters of reference, college transcripts, essays and work samples, should be compiled and submitted with a completed application form before or on the 8th June 2016, to:
