Working journalists from any media outlet (or any other suitably qualified candidates) join amaBhungane, usually for a three-month period. By working with our staff they are given the opportunity to hone their investigative skills.
Media houses are encouraged to second employees for fellowships. We can usually offer a stipend to successful candidates.
Our more than 50 fellowship alumni across the region are making their mark and have already formed two partner centres, the Ink Centre for Investigative Journalism (in Botswana), the Centre for Investigative Journalism Malawi, and an investigative unit based at The Namibian.

She hardly needs an introduction: Ferial is a veteran journalist and editor. She has edited both the Mail & Guardian and the City Press weekly newspapers and is currently editor-at-large with the recently launched Huffington Post South Africa.
Ferial is also the author of What If There Were No Whites In South Africa?
She is currently spending some time in amaBhungane’s Johannesburg office where she hopes to pick up a few more tricks of the investigative trade.
