It is inspired by former Czech President Vaclav Havel's belief in the transformational role of journalism in challenging tyranny.
Fellowship term: October 1, 2014 – June 30, 2015
Deadline for applications: July 7, 2014
This year, the Fellowship accepts applications from journalists in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine, and the Russian Federation.
