Vaclav Havel Journalism Fellows Welcomed In Prague


RFE/RL President and CEO Kevin Klose has welcomed the 2013-2014 participants of the Vaclav Havel Journalism Fellowship, a program launched in 2011 to help aspiring, independent journalists from RFE/RL's broadcast regions pursue their profession in support of a free and independent press.

The fellowship, developed in partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, is guided by the late President Havel’s belief in the transformational power of free speech, and builds on RFE/RL’s legacy of promoting open societies through journalism. Fellows are selected from countries in RFE/RL’s broadcast regions where media freedom is stifled or not fully developed.
