The Dag Hammarskjöld Fund for Journalists is now accepting applications from professional journalists for its 2020 fellowship programme. The fellowships are available to radio, television, print and Web journalists, age 25 to 35, who are interested in going to New York to report on international affairs during the seventy-fifth session of the United Nations General Assembly (opening 10 weeks). The programme extends from early September to late November 2020 and will include the cost of travel and accommodations in New York as well as a per diem allowance.
In an effort to rotate recipient countries, the Fund will not consider journalist applications from nations of the 2019 fellowship recipients: Egypt, Nigeria, Trinidad/Tobago, and Zimbabwe. Journalists from these countries may apply in 2021
