On the backdrop of the BudgIT media fellowship, which kickstarted in the year 2017, where the fellowship featured journalists who were focused on writing human-angle stories that raised advocacy on topics like budget access, project tracking, use of extractive revenues, social justice, anti-corruption, open governments, and transparency. BudgIT’s platform helped to give voice to the stories and backed stories up with real-time data.
This year for three months- September to November, the selected 12 fellows would be supported to identify spending from the gov spend platform, investigate it, and establish value for money or corruption cases that may have occurred during the procurement process. The 12 investigative stories developed from the media fellowship will be published via the medium by which the fellows work on.
- Open to investigative/media journalists from the six geopolitical zones of Nigeria;
- Applicants should be interested in writing on topics such as budget access, project tracking, use of extractive revenues, social justice, anti-corruption, open governments, and transparency.
