IREX is proud to launch the new Macedonia Media Leaders Program (MMLP) with applications available immediately. MMLP is a professional development program for Macedonian journalists and media professionals. The program strives to strengthen media in Macedonia by working with media professionals in fostering leadership skills, developing media professionalism, and expanding professional networks. Through tailored fellowships, MMLP fellows gain hands-on experience with the U.S. media sector, while participating in media and leadership training. Funding for the project is provided by the Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy in Skopje.
“We are excited to launch this new program modeled on the highly successful Community Solutions Program. From what we have seen from the Community Solutions leaders who have returned to their home countries, we are confident citizens in Macedonia and the US will benefit from this program,” says project director Nicole Mechem.
To learn more about the MMLP program and its eligibility requirements, please visit the Macedonia Media Leaders Program page. All individuals who meet the technical eligibility requirements are encouraged to apply by the application deadline, January 24, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
