THOMAS REUTERS FOUNDATION OFFERS UNDERCOVERING SECURITY PROGRAMME

Deadline: 4 September 2018 | The Thomson Reuters Foundation, in partnership with the Stanley Foundation and Gerda Henkel Stiftung, invites journalists to apply for a unique media skills development programme designed to strengthen stories on under-covered security threats and responses across the globe.

The programme features:

  • A three-day residential Story Lab (8-11 January 2018) taking place near London that will bring together journalists, security researchers, and experts to share insight on emerging security situations and explore  story ideas.
  • The opportunity to collaborate with researchers and apply for small grants to cover the cost of reporting stories.
  • Access to experienced journalists who have covered security stories all over the world who can provide guidance.
  • Support with pitching stories to international publication platforms if needed.

Uncovering Security was launched in 2016 to give journalists and researchers who are interested in similar security-related topics the opportunity to work together – to learn from each other, to share skills, expertise, resources and contacts. All applicants are asked to submit a story idea that could be developed during the programme, though they would not necessarily need to pursue that story.
