The World Journalism Institute has announced
that it is offering ten scholarships to African Christian journalists who
are employed in African newsrooms to attend the annual convention of the
National Association of Black Journalists in Tampa, Fla., this August. The
stipend covers travel, housing and convention registration and will be
awarded on a competitive basis.

The World Journalism Institute is partnering this year with the National
Association of Black Journalists for the annual NABJ convention and will be
holding its annual Conference for Minority Christian Journalists in
conjunction with the NABJ event.
The NABJ convention will be held Wednesday, August 5 through Sunday, August
9. The WJI conference is Thursday, August 9, with a reception on Friday,
August 10.

African journalists wishing to apply must go the WJI web site and make
application on the conference page.

The World Journalism Institute exists to recruit, equip, place and encourage
Christians in the mainstream newsrooms of America first and then the world.
WJI has held a series of minority conferences for several years in major
cities in America. Such nationally known journalists as Manny Garcia, John
Fountain, Dion Haynes, Herbert and Mira Lowe, Michael Luo, Rafael Olmeda,
and Adrienne Gaines have taught or spoken at WJI events.
