Deadline: 12 November 2019
Under the Adelante initiative, six journalists will travel to El Salvador from March 2 to 17, 2019. The scholars will begin their trip in Mexico City on March 2, where they will participate in a training to work in hostile and emergency first aid environments (HEFAT) from 4 to 3 March. After the workshop, the scholars will travel to El Salvador for nine days, reporting from San Salvador and its surroundings.
The objective of this scholarship is to generate coverage on important issues that normally do not receive sufficient attention in El Salvador, and promote new narratives in international media. During the trip, the scholars will have the opportunity to report as a team, work in collaboration with other journalists and access different sources and sites related to their stories. The possibility of trips outside their central location will be analyzed on a case-by-case basis and will be determined in accordance with the IWMF security protocols.
The IWMF will facilitate trips up to three hours away from San Salvador. The IWMF will organize the logistics for all the scholarship holders and will cover the costs related to the scholarship in the framework of the journalistic trip, such as transfers, accommodation, meals, and interpreters, unless the press media of a particular journalist wishes to bear these costs. The IWMF will also cover the costs of visas, but journalists living outside the United States are responsible for completing the paperwork to obtain the necessary visas.
The following criteria must be met to qualify:
- Journalists who identify themselves as women or non-binary of all nationalities who are affiliated with media or freelancers and with at least three years of professional experience working in information media. Internships do not count.
- Journalists who are not native English speakers must have a good level of spoken English in order to take advantage of the training.
- Applicants must be able to demonstrate that they have the support of unx editorx of a medium or have a recognized track record of publishing in important media.
- The IWMF believes that gender does not fit a notion. They include all journalists who identify as women, which includes trans women and non-binary people.
