TMR Fellowship is an initiative to create a forum for the exchange and osmosis of ideas between Delhi-based journalists and media houses and those from other parts of the country. We hope this initiative will make national media more representative and not just Delhi-centric.

In its first year, it will aim at capacity building and engagement between Indian and international news professionals. It’s an opportunity to sensitise different media professionals from different parts of the country.

The fellows will get an all-expense paid trip to Delhi to attend The Media Rumble and be a part of a storytelling workshop for reporting on reproductive health and women empowerment.

Eight journalists will be selected as fellows by a jury which includes Madhu Trehan (Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Newslaundry), Sanjoy Roy (Managing Director, Teamwork Arts) and Poonam Muttreja (Executive Director, PFI). The fellowship will have gender and geographical representation and include reporters from cities and towns outside of India's metro cities.

Please email if you have any questions. The deadline for the application is July 10, 2019.
