GMMP WanaData Fellowship application for women data journalists

Deadline 12th November 2021

Findings from the GMMP 2020 report revealed that women makeup only 22% of the people seen, read about or heard in the news in Africa.

Given the findings of the GMMP 2020 report which highlights amongst many things the invisibility of women as news reporters, and the underrepresentation of gender and related stories in mainstream media, Code for Africa has partnered with WACC to launch a WanaData fellowship that provides funding for journalists to research and amplify the findings of the report.

This fellowship will be announced during the prestigious AIJC 2021 conference and is targeted at engaging women in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Nigeria, South Africa for the research. The fellows will use additional data from these countries to explore the potentials of women representation in the media including key challenges, barriers and opportunities. Stories produced will further showcase the implications of possible action points that can address these gaps.

The details of the fellowship are outlined as follows:

  • No of Fellowships: Up 6 fellows will be awarded

  • Award Amount: The fellowship will award a total of ~6,000 USD

  • Fellowship support: Each fellow would receive bi-monthly training and mentorship sessions by CfA’s data analysts and trainers

  • Publishing and dissemination of findings: Fellows will publish their findings with local media partners across Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Nigeria and South Africa.
