Applications for 2012 now open
Deadline: 5pm (Singapore time), Friday 14 October 2011.
The Fellowship brings journalists from Asia to Singapore’s Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information at Nanyang Technological University for three months.
The 2012 Fellowship will run from 27 February to 18 May. The application deadline is 14 October 2011.
Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information
The Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information is one of the leading schools of its kind in Asia.
It has an enrollment of around 1,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students in fields such as journalism, public relations and knowledge management. Its more than 40 full-time faculty are engaged in diverse research, ranging from media law and censorship, public opinion and health communication, to video game culture and Asian film.
The Wee Kim Wee School is also the home of the Asian Media Information and Communication Centre (AMIC), an NGO that spearheads the development of media and communication expertise in Asia within the broad framework of economic, social and cultural development. For more than 30 years, its programmes and publications have crossed the boundaries between academia, media professions and policy makers, allowing those with an interest in communication in Asia to share perspectives, challenges, and best practices.
Applicants should have at least five years of full-time working experience as journalists (not including as student journalists) and possess potential for leadership and management within the profession or organisation.
Applicants should be residing in Asia. Preference is given to those working for Asian media organisations.
Applicants can be working in any medium — print, radio, television or online.
Journalists working in non-English media are welcome to apply, but must show proficiency in English through a telephone interview, as English is the working language of the programme.
Applications from journalists in full-time positions must be accompanied by a letter of support from employers, stating that the applicant would be released for the full period of the fellowship, from 25 February to 20 May 2012. Freelancers are welcome to apply if they are primarily engaged in news or current affairs journalism.
