  1. The conference will play an important role in journalism. It is necessary to organize such a conference in Bangladesh like development in Bangladesh.

  2. Team,
    I am a freelance investigative reporter, photographer looking forward to attend this conference. I have posting on this forum seeking some leads to avail a fellowship (I know full fellowships are CLOSED). However, kindly advise other open opportunities. Thank you

    • Dear Reghavendra,

      Yes, you have missed the deadline to apply for a conference fellowship. We received nearly 1800 applications from around the world. We appreciate that you still want to join us. You will have to find sponsorship elsewhere. We suggest you try Western embassies, which might have exchange or foreign education programs, international assistance programs, and foundations. Hope you can find a way to join us. Best of luck!

  3. I have applied for the GIJN Conference fellowship. I have great passion and hope to be given a chance. When will we be notified about the decisions made by the panel. I really need a chance as i am a veteran in this field. But when will be the notification date.

  4. Hope this fellowship will not have any discrimination and experienced Journalists should be given a chance. Especially those who have never gotten the opportunity. Hope no racism or other form of bias

    • Jonathan — Our fellowships are designed to bring in as diverse a group as possible. They are set up for journalists from developing and transitioning countries, with particular attention to those who have never attended our conferences before. Our last conference hosted journalists from 130 countries — including 30 African states — and was nearly half women. Here’s GIJN’s non-discrimination policy, which we take very seriously: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LOwhkisQbmC8v91W35q3o5mPLJzdW7sZ/view

    • Dear Wang,

      We received a record number of 1773 applications so we are still in the process of fellows selection. All successful applicants will be notified by June 30, 2019. If you do not hear from us by that date, it would mean you were unsuccessful.


    • No, fellows will be informed by email by June 30, 2019. If you do not hear from us by that date, it would mean you were unsuccessful. Good luck!

  6. The predicament a journalist faces while indulging in investigative reporting is what to write, and what to leave, out of the gamut of information he has gathered during the process of nosing around; and this is precisely why GIJN Conference is significant. I have so far not heard from GIJN and am greatly disappointed as I wanted to learn, and subsequently impart training. I am still keeping my fingers crossed.

    • Please note that all fellowships have now been awarded. If you have not received notice, you unfortunately did not receive one. The program had a record number of applicants this year — nearly 1800 — and it was impossible to bring all the qualified candidates.

      GIJN will host future conferences and offer fellowships to attend them. To stay informed about new opportunities, be sure to subscribe to our fortnightly newsletter. Thanks for your interest!
