About Indigenous Community Media Youth Fellowship 2021

Cultural Survival is pleased to announce its fourth call for proposals for the Indigenous Community Media Youth Fellowship which supports Indigenous youth communicators in building their capacity as radio broadcasters and journalists through specific training, community radio visits and exchanges, radio production, conference attendance, and other educational opportunities. Applicants must reside in one of the following countries: Mexico, Central America, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Namibia, Botswana, South Africa, Nepal and northern India.

 

With years of experience coordinating capacity building efforts through workshops, conferences, radio station exchanges, facilitating the development of regional networks, and supporting advocacy efforts to legalize and democratize community media, Cultural Survival elevates the experience, assets, and expertise of the communities that we partner with through our Indigenous Community Media Fund. We believe that it is crucial to listen and respond to the self-determined needs of the communities in order to provide support that is sustainable and most importantly, pertinent to the needs of the community. Indigenous youth are the future of their communities and developing youth leadership is an integral part of ensuring communities’ well being.

 

Our Fellowship program provides ten fellowships annually to Indigenous youth communicators between the ages of 17-25. Each fellow receives $2,500 USD to implement their project during a 8 to 10 month period. Applicants must be able to work and travel independently and be responsible for implementing their proposed projects. The fellows will work jointly with a Cultural Survival staff member and a personal local mentor, who will provide support throughout the fellowship process.

* Indigenous youth between the ages of 17 and 25

* Commitment and motivation to learn about technology, program development, work of other community radios, and the international promotion of Indigenous rights.

 

* Applicants must be able to work and travel independently and be responsible for implementing their proposed projects. The project can be submitted individually or by a collective of youth from a community radio station.

 

* Applicants must reside in Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Chile, Namibia, Botswana, South Africa or northern India.
