GroundUp Fellowship

Status: Closed

  • Fellowships

Organisation: GroundUp

Deadline: 31/05/2024

Location: South Africa

Are you an experienced journalist with an idea you want to implement? Here’s an exciting opportunity. Apply for a fellowship with GroundUp.

The GroundUp Fellowship team is especially interested in the following themes: prisons and the justice system, some aspects of labour, mining, and climate change. But if you have an exciting pitch on another subject, please apply; they are open to interesting ideas. Also, if your expertise or interest is photography, video or podcasting, you are also welcome to apply.

They will work closely with you and support you. The first two weeks of your fellowship will be based at their office in Cape Town. If you live out of Cape Town, they’ll cover your transport and accommodation for that period.

The GroundUp fellowship will pay R42,500 per month before tax. You will need at least ten years experience as a journalist. For now the fellowship is available only for pitches in South Africa.
