(This article expired 08.11.2013 / 08:45.)

Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty invite Armenian journalists to apply for the fellowship, consisting of 9 months on-the job training while working alongside RFE/RL professionals in Prague and in RFE/RL´s local bureaus.


The Vaclav Havel Journalism Fellowship is a joint program between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty that is inspired by the former Czech president´s belief in the transformation role of journalism in challenging authoritarian regimes. It provides direct work experience and mentoring at RFE/RL´s Prague headquarters to journalists from countries in RFE/RL´s broadcast region where media freedom is stifled. For more information about the program, visit http://www.rferl.org/havel_journalism_fellowship.html.

The Fellowship offers a unique opportunity for journalists to receive on-the-job training while working alongside RFE/RL´s seasoned professionals in Prague and in RFE/RL´s local bureaus. Fellows will be integrated into RFE/RL language services and participate actively in multi-media programming and reporting. They will also represent themselves, RFE/RL and the Fellowship in public events and in discussions relating to media conditions in their country. Fellowships last nine months, including time spent in country in RFE/RL´s local bureau and in the Prague broadcasting headquarters, and include a stipend, housing and travel arrangements to and from Prague.

Completed applications must be received at havelfellowship@rferl.org by Friday, July 5, 2013.
