ACFJ offers 15 journalism fellowships for 2010

Manila, 19 November 2009 Applications for the 2010-2011 Fellowships for M.A. Journalism are now being accepted by the Konrad Adenauer Asian Center for Journalism at the Ateneo de Manila University (ACFJ). The fellowships are awarded to full-time Asian journalists who have excellent professional and academic record, strong commitment to good journalism and leadership qualities. A grant covers tuition and other expenses for the two-year M.A. Journalism program which is offered by the Ateneo de Manila University with ACFJs support.

Since its inception in 2003, 90 journalists from 15 Asian countries have received grants. Ateneos M.A. Journalism is distinctive for its innovative use of online and conventional learning methods. The master?s program covers 12 courses which are conducted using a mix of online and conventional methods. Six are purely online courses, three are held in the conventional classroom, and another three are hybrid courses that take place alternately in the online and on-campus. The program?s design allows working journalists and other media professionals to study at their own pace and time, and in their own homes or workplaces. Courses in ethics, media law and news writing are at he core of the program. Journalism courses which are regional and cutting edge in content comprise the electives. Lecturers come from Asia as well as Australia, U.K., and the U.S.

ACFJ, a joint project of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) and the Ateneo, was founded in June 2000 to promote good journalism in Asia by providing training opportunities primarily for working journalists.
