Vaclav Havel and Jiri Dienstbier Journalism Fellowship Programs ― Details

Vaclav Havel Journalism Fellowship

Goal

The goal of the program is to strengthen the capacity of aspiring journalists to pursue their profession in support of democracy and human rights. Selected Fellows are placed with a language service in the company’s Prague headquarters, where they receive on-the-job training and mentoring while working alongside RFE/RL’s seasoned professionals. The program equips them with cutting edge tools and multi-media skills, while involving them in the daily editorial debates and discussions that inform a professional, independent press.
