New Diplomacy 's Independent Journalism Fellowship for Eastern Partnership Countries is an initiative to raise standards of journalism covering the post-Soviet space. Journalism based in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine are eligible.
The fellowships will take place from August 2016-February 2017 (with placements for up to five weeks in an EU country during the period September-December 2016).
Each fellow will work with a mentor (a media expert based in the host country, either directly working for the hosting media organisation, or an expert able to liaise with the host organisation) for a four-month period of project co-operation and mentoring.
For each fellow, New Diplomacy will cover international travel to the host country and back, and in addition up to a maximum of US$ 3,000 in expenses, covering local travel, visa costs where necessary, and subsistence and accommodation for the five weeks spent at the host organisation.
