Offer: Fellowship to bring Grassroots Voices to the Forefront!

Amazing opportunity here with the Aspen New Voices Fellowship, and ties directly in to what the VOF program is doing. "The Fellowship, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, offers development experts from Africa and other parts of the developing world a year-long program of media support, training, research and writing under the guidance of experienced mentors and trainers." Focusing on voices from developing countries, if you are a VOF or want to receive further, serious, professional training in journalism, please look at this program. Applications and nominations BEGIN (correction from previous post) September 15th. Note: You must be nominated, so now is the time to seek nomination sources! Please message me if you are interested in joining a group with the goal of seeking nominations and applying.

Thanks for sharing! Though, it looks like the application for 2014 starts on September 15....

"Applications to the Fellowship is by nomination only, and we will begin the formal nomination process for 2014 on September 15th. Nominations, including a brief note explaining why the candidate would benefit from the program, should be sent to Fellowship Director Andrew Quinn at andrew.quinn@aspeninst.org or submitted on our "Nominations" page."

And, everyone should be excited to see that a World Pulse member was selected as a fellow for the 2013 class, Yvonne Leina Fomuso!

Nomination requirements

"The Aspen Institute’s New Voices Fellowship is a year-long media skills, communication and leadership program designed for standout development professionals from the developing world. Candidates for the Fellowship are expected to have both a record of significant professional achievement and a desire to share their perspectives on global development with a broader international audience. The Fellowship is open by nomination only.

While the fellowship is non-resident and not full-time, it does require a significant and sustained time commitment as fellows write opinion articles, participate in interviews with local and international media, and speak at international conferences. All expenses related to the fellowship are paid, including certain media-related travel costs." http://aspennewvoices.org/nominations/
