Media Excellence Fellowship is a 5-month program designed for young professionals who are interested in media and journalism to offer them real-life experience and improve their skills in cross-format journalism through rigorous internship experience. Fellows will rotate through four prominent news and media companies in Mongolia for the duration of the program, gaining exposure to different aspects of journalism and are expected to make their projects their full-time work during the term of the fellowship.
Eight young professionals will be selected in this first-ever fellowship program. Fellows are individuals who have a strong desire to pursue a career in media and don’t necessarily need to possess professional education in the sector. However, applicants must be either currently pursuing or have obtained their bachelor’s degree with no more than three years of postgraduate professional work experience.
The program consists of three major types of activities—internship, workshops, and overseas fellowship. All of these activities will be oriented towards practical approaches and solutions related to journalism, not only abstract academic formulations.
