The 2022 Reham Al-Farra Memorial Journalism Fellowship Programme (RAF) is now open for young, working journalists from developing countries and countries with economies in transition to cover the United Nations. This programme Hosted every autumn at UN Headquarters, the programme brings a select group of journalists to New York to cover the opening of the General Assembly for their news outlets.

The Fellowship Programme (RAF) will take place virtually this year due to the ongoing uncertainty of global travel restrictions. The programme will run for three weeks during working hours NY time from around mid-September to the beginning of October 2022. During the 3-week programme, fellows have an opportunity to attend special briefings, interview senior officials and exchange ideas with colleagues from around the world. In previous years, fellows have met with the UN Secretary-General, Deputy Secretary-General, President of the General Assembly and permanent representatives to the United Nations.
