Minority Africa 2024 Limbo Fellowship Project

Minority Africa 2024 Limbo Fellowship Project – The Minority Africa Fellowship proudly presents the first edition of a new project: The Limbo Fellowship Project. The call for interested journalists, writers, writers, photographers, filmmakers, with provable work experience in their fields and are at least 18 years of age is still on
This edition of the Limbo Fellowship focuses on five countries; Mozambique, Mauritius, Uganda, Nigeria, and Tanzania. These countries embody communities whose narratives often languish in obscurity or neglect, yet form an integral part of our societies.

Requirements

The Minority Africa fellowship is open to journalists, filmmakers, writers, photographers, and storytellers. Here is a complete list of the eligibility requirements below:

Eligibility
  • Applicants must be 18 years years of age by the time of their application.
  • Applicants  must be from and living in either one of the following countries: Mozambique, Mauritius, Tanzania, Uganda, Nigeria
  • Must have an interest in covering one of the focus minority groups for the fellowship. These groups are: ethnic minorities, migrants, refugees, waterfront communities, and analogous marginalized groups.
  • Be able to commit 10 – 20 hours each week to the fellowship.
  • Must have demonstrable work experience/interest in their chosen focus area for the duration of the fellowship.
  • Able to understand and communicate in English. The fellowship is primarily conducted in English. Applicants don’t have to be excellent speakers but they do have to know how to communicate in English. This on the other hand does not have to be the primary language they work in. We will consider applicants who for instance write primarily in other languages such as Portuguese, Swahili, or French but are able to communicate in English.
  • Access to the internet and good data connection. While we understand internet access is not available everywhere on the continent, being an entirely virtual fellowship, connectivity is a crucial component. Besides their allowance, fellows will be provided with a monthly internet stipend. We are also continually working on a way to potentially eliminate the need for a strong internet connection in subsequent cohorts of the fellowship.
