The Douglas Tweedale Memorial Fellowship helps Latin American journalists improve their investigative reporting skills, either generally or in a specialty reporting area such as immigration, environment, science and technology or business, through a two-week long program.

This year's fellowship will be awarded to two Latin American journalists who seek to improve their environmental reporting skills. The two-week professional program will take place in Lima, Peru, and will include appointments with area investigative journalists, environmental experts, and short embeds with media outlets specializing in environmental coverage. During the program, Fellows will conduct reporting based on a specific project or objective that they have proposed in their application.

To be considered, candidates should:

  • Be early- to mid-career journalists working at independent news organizations, including print, radio, television or online media in Latin America who have an interest in honing their investigative reporting skills;
  • Have a demonstrated commitment to excellence in journalism;
  • Have a desire to develop strong professional skills and a self-starting attitude.
