NR Governance Institute Fellowship: The NRGI fellowship is uniquely designed to support up to three senior or mid-career journalists to deepen their mastery of oil, gas, and mining reporting through a tailored professional capacity development program over a nine-month period.

NR Governance Institute Fellowship 2021 for Journalists

Fellows will have the opportunity to engage in a range of flexible formal and informal learning opportunities including exclusive short seminars by leaders in the oil, gas, and mining fields,

Also, financial and technical support for three extractives stories, attendance at global media events, and participation in a regional resource governance training event.

A project advisor, along with Media Council of Tanzania and NRGI staff, will support fellows throughout the duration of the fellowship, and NRGI will provide fellows’ access to sector experts.

At the end of the term, fellows will be better equipped to analyze information about the oil, gas and mining sectors and transform that analysis into impactful stories.

The fellowship will support reporters as they enhance their ability to spotlight different voices and perspectives; use multiple sources; report ethically and accountably on complex issues such as state-owned enterprise governance; reference and analyze primary oil, gas, and mining documents; access and evaluate industry-related data; and reflect international best practices.


  • NRGI will provide full sponsorship to fellows to participate in The African Investigative Journalism Conference at Wits University, Johannesburg, South Africa (October 29-31, 2018) or a similar conference.
  • NRGI will provide full sponsorship to fellows to participate in one NRGI regional course, such as the Anglophone Africa Regional Extractive Industries Knowledge Hub Course.
  • Fellows will engage in a range of flexible formal and informal learning opportunities including exclusive short seminars by leaders in the oil, gas, and mining fields.
  • Fellows will have access to a project editor, an NRGI staff, and access to sector experts throughout the duration of the fellowship.
  • Fellows will have the opportunity to apply for funding for different information resources related to the resource sector (e.g., journals, databases, libraries, publications, forums).
  • Fellows have the opportunity to apply for up to $750 per story to cover reporting costs with an itemized budget attributed to each story in advance of payment for fellows to complete their projects over the course of the fellowship.
  • Fellows will return to their media organizations better equipped to report the oil, gas and mining sectors at a more technical and informed level and to share new knowledge with their colleagues.


Overall, the fundamental attributes of a fellow will be self-driven, pro-active engagement and the ability to follow through on commitments and to complete the program with minimal supervision. Others are:

  • At least five years of continuous journalism experience
  • Proven record of reporting on oil, gas, and mining topics (in English or Swahili)
