The data journalism fellowships will support six fellows for up to a year to produce innovative data-driven stories that demonstrate the possibilities of the genre to other media and to the public. The fellows will work together as a data team at a media outlet (Media–K key partner which will be determined), and will receive additional training at various points over the fellowship to hone their skills, including a mandatory kick-off training in January and ongoing consultations from a regional data journalism expert.
The selected fellows will receive stipends of 3000 USD per year to cover their salaries for six months with a possibility of renewing for another six months, if performance and progress is satisfactory and previously set milestones are achieved.
Applicants will be selected based on the quality of their submitted portfolio, faculty and trainer recommendations, ideas for data journalism stories they would like to pursue, and a demonstrated willingness to work as a data journalist at an identified media outlet for a full year.
A group of selected fellows will undergo initial training, and then permanent consultations and mentoring from a regional expert on data journalism will continue.
It is expected to create and publish in the team of certain media at least one material per month, based on open data.
Fellows will receive knowledge and skills of a full cycle on work with data (search, reception, cleaning, specification, analyze, visualization)
