Paradigm Initiative’s DRIMF is a 4-month program running twice a year and designed to immerse outstanding early career journalists of not more than 8 years’ experience in the digital ecosystem. Selected media professionals work with Paradigm Initiative on various projects and contribute to improving public understanding of digital rights and inclusion issues in Africa. Through academic and practical learnings, Paradigm Initiative Digital Rights and Digital Inclusion Media Fellowship embeds media professionals within the digital ecosystem.
DRIMF exposes media professionals to an underreported field of work at national and regional level, increasing reporting on digital rights and inclusion in Africa. This is achieved through professional and academic components. The fellowship is open to journalists working in Africa.
