Young people and citizens across the country like you are playing a crucial role by reporting on what is happening around you and your community with truth and accuracy and by asking the right questions — pandemic or not.
Youth Ki Awaaz, in partnership with Internews, is building the next generation of young citizen journalists in mobile journalism with the Youth Ki Awaaz and Internews Media Fellowship. This is a unique opportunity to unleash your creativity, report and cover stories that need to be heard on issues that matter.
What is it?
A 2-day, online workshop packed with engaging sessions on storytelling, journalism and production followed by an opportunity to cover stories of impact and change on ground.

Early bird applications for phase 2 now open!
You will need the following to be able to complete the Fellowship easily:
A good and stable internet connection.
Laptop with a good web camera and charger to attend the workshop. You may use a laptop microphone and laptop speaker. Headphones with an in-built microphone are even better. Avoid mobile phones here as it is difficult to capture the full experience for a participant and Moderator.
Smartphone with a working camera and microphone for the assignments.
Notepad and pens.
The Media Fellowship is an all expense-paid opportunity, so everything from your application to the workshop is free of cost!
Your application only covers your participation in the workshop and only you are eligible for the grant, should you be selected. However, if you have someone in mind who would be interested, we urge you to spread the word and have them apply for the Media Fellowship too!
The process to apply for the grant will be made clearer after you've attended the workshop training. There are some prescribed benchmarks you would have to meet to qualify!
Once you have attended the Media Fellowship Workshop and completed your assigned stories, you are a Media Fellow [for life :)]. In case you are not able to secure the grant, you will have continued access to support, mentorship, and several other opportunities and all our support!
