Description:

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) in partnership with the United Nations Foundation, has designed a special reporting program “The World 2030” from February 23-25 that will offer 15-20 student reporters an unprecedented opportunity to learn about and report on the UN’s agenda to achieve social and economic equity by 2030. Participating students will gain unparalleled access to UN global experts and policymakers; training and mentoring to produce a high-quality, multimedia-rich reporting project; and site visits to top local newsrooms.

Based at the United Nations Foundation’s D.C. headquarters, students will attend high-level briefings, interview global experts and contribute to interactive roundtable discussions on topics including U.S.-U.N. relations, global climate and development and U.S. action on the U.N’s sustainable development agenda for 2030.

Teams of four to five students will produce a multimedia-rich story package related to the sustainable development goals. These stories will be published on ICFJ’s International Journalists’ Network website, and will help enhance students’ portfolios and resumes.

Student projects will explore one of these topics in-depth:
•Climate
•Immigration
•U.S. and the World
•Women and Girls

Interested candidates must complete a brief Fellowship application. Applicants should include:

•A resume/curriculum vitae
•An optional 250-word essay outlining the reason for applying to the program and hoped-for outcomes
•Agreement to participate in the in-person training program in DC Feb. 23-25, 2018

Entries must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. U.S. Eastern time on Thursday, February 1, 2018.
