​Mobile Video Journalism Fellowship

The Aga Khan University Graduate School of Media and Communications (AKU-GSMC), in partnership with Facebook introduced The Mobile Video Journalism Fellowship –an initiative that aims to bolster digital skills in journalism to increase the production of Kenyan stories captured through high-quality mobile video. 

This fellowship program is designed to train qualified storyteller​s on digital mobile journalism and attach them to local Kenyan newsrooms over a six month period.

Selected fellows will be placed as staff (paid by stipend) with Kenyan media houses where they will use smartphones to tell their stories. They will be tasked with conducting hands-on investigative journalism and creating relevant digital content. Additionally, fellows will be required to participate in various boot camps and workshops on selected weekends. This experience is designed to improve your skills in storytelling with data, mobile editing, and mobile journalism.
