female_journalistThe Population Reference Bureau (PRB) in Washington, D.C., is inviting senior-level women journalists from developing countries to apply to its Women’s Edition program.

Up to 15 women journalists from the print, electronic, and broadcast media will be selected to become part of this international network of leading editors, reporters, and producers interested in women’s health and development.

Through seminars and study tours, the project provides the journalists with the latest information on reproductive health and development issues, including family planning and safe motherhood, so they can better cover these topics.

Participants will attend seminars and study tours around the world. PRB covers travel and other seminar-related expenses. Journalists may write or broadcast in any language, but they must be able to communicate comfortably and effectively in English.

The deadline for applications is September 5, 2012. Participants are selected on a competitive basis.
