The Douglas Tweedale Memorial Fellowship helps Latin American journalists improve their investigative reporting skills, either generally or in a specialty reporting area such as immigration, environment, science and technology or business, through a two-week long program.

About the Fellowship

The fellowship program runs every other year. This year’s fellowship will be awarded to two Latin American journalists who seek to improve their environmental reporting skills. The two-week professional program will take place in Lima, Peru, and will include appointments with area investigative journalists, environmental experts, and short embeds with media outlets specializing in environmental coverage. During the program, Fellows will conduct reporting based on a specific project or objective that they have proposed in their application.

Apply to the Fellowship

This fellowship is open to Latin American journalists who are fluent in Spanish and proficient in English, and who are working at a news organization or as a freelance journalist based in the region.
