After another two weeks of training at MU in July and a final seminar in Washington, D.C., the Fellows return to their home countries, where they share their new knowledge and skills with their newsroom colleagues.
The fellows work for five months at U.S. news organizations. Guided by mentors, they participate in daily newsroom activities, get stories published and gain a deep understanding of journalism in America.
Fellows reunite in July for the mid-term seminar and get hands-on training in data journalism, investigative reporting and advanced multimedia reporting at the Missouri School of Journalism.
The agenda also includes lectures on ethics and communications law, using social media for reporting, using mobile tools for reporting, data reporting and multimedia reporting.
Six reporters, from Cuba, Kenya, Pakistan, Ukraine, Turkey and South Africa, are participating in the 2016 program, which runs from March through August and starts with an expanded training program at the Missouri School of Journalism.
