Applications are currently being accepted for the 2022 Václav Havel Journalism Fellowship. The purpose of the Fellowship is to support aspiring journalists from countries lacking media freedom and independence to pursue their profession in support of pluralism. It is inspired by former Czech President Václav Havel’s belief in the transformational role of journalism in challenging tyranny and oppression.

The Fellowship provides mentoring and support for outstanding journalists dedicated to promoting human rights and democracy in their target regions.
