RNTC, the international training institute serving media professionals working in broadcast, print and online media is offering the RNTC Fellowship Fund to support journalists, programme-makers, broadcast trainers and managers from around the world who are looking to develop their media skills, but do not have enough financial means to pay for the costs of the course of their choice.
The fellowships are available for the following courses:
- Mastering Social Media
- Multimedia Journalism and Water
