ACICIS Journalism Professional PracticumWhat we provide

The Asia New Zealand Foundation is offering two grants, each worth NZ$6000, toward participants' course fees (AU$3000), travel costs and accommodation. New Zealand journalism students and graduates are eligible to apply.  You need to be a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident to apply for these grants.

How to apply

You will need to complete the ACICIS JPP application form and send it to the Asia New Zealand Foundation. The form is quite substantial and requires you to obtain references and passport photos, so allow yourself adequate time to complete it. 
 
Note: You DO NOT need to complete page 10 of the form, which is for ACICIS member universities only.

Selection process

The Foundation will do an initial assessment of the applications. Candidates will then be shortlisted by a panel consisting of Foundation staff and external media experts.

Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by telephone before the Foundation forwards successful applications to ACICIS for final approval.

Applications must reach Asia New Zealand Foundation by 5pm, Monday, 16 September, 2013
