Como em anos anteriores, a LatAm Journalism Review (LJR) preparou uma lista de bolsas que são tradicionalmente abertas a jornalistas de fora dos Estados Unidos, além de informações sobre inscrições.
The announcement of the ten Latin American journalism start-ups selected to receive $1.5 million in direct investment from the Velocidad program generated enthusiasm among the winners. In addition to the resources, the outlets will receive 1,600 consulting hours to generate new revenue streams, engage audiences and ultimately develop a more sustainable media business.
