Register for the FT One World Media Fellowship Program

Do you have an idea for the next long read from Sub-Saharan Africa that could go in the Financial Times? We’re excited to announce a new partnership to make this happen.

n collaboration with the FT, we’re looking for a mid-career journalist from, based in and covering Sub-Saharan Africa, with an ambitious written story to tell a global audience. 

Think big. This might be what you’d expect to see on the home page of one of the world’s biggest newspapers.

We’re looking for a great writer with some experience who can break down a complex story in simple language, compellingly, in a way that has wide appeal and relatability. The selected Fellow will produce a piece of long-form journalism – an economic or business story from the region that resonates with FT’s global audience. 

The FT Fellow will join the existing One World Media Fellowship cohort to learn alongside a talented worldwide peer group while receiving guidance and a reporting grant of £1,000. 

The FT will provide further training, editorial support and one-to-one mentoring from senior editors, with the aim of showcasing the final piece at their global platform. 


  • Open for entries: 7 September 2023
  • Deadline: Thursday 5 October 2023, 5PM UTC
  • FT Fellow announced: November 2023
