Join BOOM's Teen Fact-Checking Network! (Summer 2024)
We're back with the second edition! Come, join a ground-breaking media literacy project for teens by BOOM, an independent fact-checking outlet in India. We are hiring 10 teenaged fact-checkers for 6 months, starting July for the Teen Fact-Checking Network (TFCN). This is a paid, and once-in-a-lifetime experience. We're looking for writers, researchers and on-camera fact-checkers. 

Applicants don't need to have prerequisite knowledge of fact-checking. At the end of scholarship duration, students will receive a scholarship stipend. 

The TFCN is a prestigious, one-of-its-kind scholarship programme bringing together teenaged fact-checkers from around the world. In 2023, BOOM successfully concluded the first edition of TFCN in India partnering with MediaWise in the United States.

DEADLINE:
All applicants will receive a response by 21st June 2024.
