Radio Liberty started accepting applications for Vaclav Havel Journalism fellowship

Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty and the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs have started to  accept applications for the Vaclav Havel Journalism Fellowship for the 2020/2021 academic year, as Radio Svoboda reported.

Applications are accepted until August 11, 2020 inclusive. The fellowship is to last from January 4 to July 30, 2021.

The program aims to help the journalists from the countries where freedom of speech is failing, to comply with the professional standards. The program has been inspired by the late Czech leader’s belief in the transformational power of free speech, and builds on RFE/RL’s legacy of promoting more open societies through journalism.

Beyond RFE/RL and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Czech Republic, the fellowship is supported by the Dagmar and Vaclav Havel Foundation Vize97.

The journalists from Uraine, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Russia are eligible for the training. Fellows are selected as a result of a highly competitive process. They are placed with an appropriate language service at RFE/RL's Prague headquarters to receive on-the-job training and mentoring, while working alongside RFE/RL’s seasoned professionals. Programs equip Fellows with cutting-edge journalistic skills, and involve them in the daily editorial debates and discussions that inform a professional and independent press so that they may become standard-bearers of the profession and leaders in their communities, on-line, on air, and in the world.

Previously, fellows of the program have been Nataliya Sedletska, Olga Malchevska, Safieye Ablyayeva, Yaroslava Kutsay, Hlib Zhavoronkov.
