If you are from the majority world or underrepresented communities within the G20 countries, you may be eligible for sponsored education in media practice through the VII Academy. 
The VII Academy has vibrant campuses in Sarajevo, Bosnia, and Arles, France, and a massive online and interactive presence that reaches beyond the one week workshop module. Our strategy is to promote, teach, and foster high-quality international journalism in the geographical and socio-economic spaces that do not have access to commercial courses and traditional learning.  We do this by providing emerging professionals and students from these communities with tuition-free education in media practice, visual journalism, narrative, ethics, business, and entrepreneurship, enabling in the long term a culture where the information narrative is democratized.
New programs at the VII Academy, all of which are tuition-free, are posted throughout the year at
