The Reham Al-Farra Memorial Journalism Fellowship is a unique opportunity for young (22 to 35), working journalists from developing countries and countries with economies in transition to cover the United Nations. Hosted every fall at UN Headquarters, the programme brings a select group of journalists to New York to cover the opening of the General Assembly for their news outlets.

During the 3-week programme, fellows have an opportunity to attend special briefings, interview senior officials and exchange ideas with colleagues from around the world. In previous years, fellows have met with the UN Secretary-General, President of the General Assembly and permanent representatives to the United Nations. The programme also arranges visits to various news organizations, such as the New York Times, Democracy Now! and WNYC radio.


The Fellowship covers travel to New York and provides a daily subsistence allowance to cover accommodation and related expenses.


To meet the eligibility requirements, candidates must:

  • be between 22 and 35 years old
  • be a fulltime working journalist
  • be proficient in English
  • possess a passport valid for at least 6 months beyond the start of the Programme (programme begins September 2019)
  • be a national of a developing country or country in transition, as defined by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs.
