The Africa Data Hub (ADH) Community Journalism Fellowship is glad to make open the application submission for the the second cohort from suitably qualified Nigerian journalist who are interested in improving the coverage of under-reported issues in local communities across the country.

The programme will prioritize stories deep-diving into community health challenges, causes of hunger and extreme poverty, and more importantly stories of showing structural barriers women and girls face.

This fellowship program will support Nigerian journalists with grants, capacity development and tools to produce in-depth data-driven stories that are investigative in nature on issues affecting communities in different parts of the country.

The Africa Data Hub (ADH) Community Journalism Fellowship is an initiative of Orodata Science whose core mission is to continue to democratize data, and knowledge towards solutions that impact the lives of millions across the country. The fellowship is committed to giving young journalists from Nigeria the required training and support from experts in data journalism for them to research and publish a data story.
