2018 Program Highlights
In summer of 2018, 11 talented fellows had an opportunity to look at media through the lenses of TRT World, and to improve their journalism skills and understanding of the Turkish culture. Through the hands-on experience in the newsrooms and the studios, fellows gained first-hand participation of behind the scenes making of TV programs and reports.
"Fellows will perform meaningful, serious work that furthers their professional development. In return, TRT World will benefit not only from the contributions made by the Fellows to the day-to-day work of journalism, but also from the fresh perspectives from across the globe that the Fellows will bring to the table.”

Ibrahim Eren, Director General and Chairman of TRT
