Khabar Lahariya's Rural Media Fellowship

The Rural Media Fellowship is designed for media professionals hailing from rural or urban areas, including those associated with national outlets, whether in print or digital media, or freelancers serving as reporters or editors either independently or as part of newsrooms. This fellowship aims to facilitate collaboration between these participants and Khabar Lahariya reporters.

By utilizing the gained insights from the rural reporting toolkit, the fellows will strategize and report immersive rural stories on location, delving deeper into the subject matter than conventional news coverage allows. Fellows will get the opportunity to work closely with a Khabar Lahariya Reporter while doing their reporting.


  • 5 Fellows selected through an open call will be awarded Rs.30,000 each.
  • 1 in-depth feature video story or 1 article - bi-lingual reported by the fellows will be published in Khabar Lahariya digital platforms.
