African Arguments 2021 Pilot Fellowship for Young Freelancers

The African Arguments fellowship is a mentorship and training programme for young freelancers based on the continent. It is aimed at African journalists under the age of 30 who are committed to building the skills necessary for a sustainable career as a freelancer.

About African Arguments

African Arguments is a pan-African platform for news, investigation and opinion.

The African Arguments Pilot Fellowship for Young Freelancers


Aim and Benefits of The African Arguments Pilot Fellowship for Young Freelancers

The fellowship is designed to fit into (rather than disrupt) the chosen journalists’ already busy schedules and help them develop through two key ways:

  • Firstly, the fellows will be guaranteed three paid commissions that they will work on with dedicated one-on-one mentoring from the African Arguments editors. With generous and experienced guidance, the journalists will be supported in producing engaging, balanced, original work of the highest quality on topics of their choice. The finished pieces will be published and heavily promoted on African Arguments (with opportunities for republication elsewhere).
  • Secondly, the fellows will receive a series of expert-led online trainings over the course of three months. These devoted and intimate sessions will help the freelancers learn from experienced leaders in the field, share ideas, and develop key freelancing skills such as pitching, securing funding, writing for international audiences etc. It may also include additional trainings arranged to cater to the chosen fellows’ specific needs or interests.

Students must commit to attending all online trainings and complete all commissioned pieces.

This program is entirely FREE and will be conducted in ENGLISH.
