The Radio Festival, in partnership with UNESCO, organizes a unique fellowship for community reporters and community broadcasters. The Fellowship provides an opportunity for them to cover important, under-reported stories through the audio medium. Aligned to the SDG Toolkit developed by SMART in partnership with UNESCO and UNICEF, New Delhi, the purpose of the Fellowship is to build the capacities of community radio practitioners for innovative programming on Sustainable Development Goals.
To know more about the SDGs and how to use community radio for effectively communicating these Goals, refer to The SDG Toolkit for Community Radios.
The selected fellows do the research work, followed by producing and filing on-air and online stories as part of the fellowship, with support from their parent radio station.
The program targets community reporters and community broadcasters, including volunteers and students associated with/attached to CR stations. Applicant must be an Indian resident.
The applicant will be required to fill-up and submit an online application form. The applicant will also be required to upload a 2-minute audio clip describing the reasons for applying to the program and the SDG he/she/they plan to focus on during the fellowship.
