FISU launches 2nd Young Reporters’ Programme at 2013 SU in Kazan

The participants of the Young Reporters' Program and their mentors

LAUSANNE - In 2011, FISU, the International University Sports Federation, together with its media partner AIPS, the International Sports Press Association, launched a sports journalism education program to provide young sport journalists with a unique training experience during FISU’s major multi-sport event, the Summer Universiade. The first edition of the FISU/AIPS Young Reporters’ Program at the 26th Summer Universiade in Shenzhen, China (August 12th to 23rd, 2011) was a genuine success.

For the 27th Summer Universiade in Kazan, Russia (July 6th to 17th, 2013), FISU once again will invite 12 young sport journalists from the five continents to the Games in Kazan alongside the athletes where they will receive specialized media training.

The Young Reporters’ Program (YRP) aims to include 19 to 25-year-old students or recent graduates in sports journalism from the five continents of Africa (2), America (4), Asia (2), Oceania (2) and Europe (2) right into the middle of the Games for 14 days, with full access to the competition venues and MPC. They will be joined by their peers from Russia.

FISU will nominate 12 (6 male & 6 female) Young Sport Journalists on the basis of performance and promise. They could be university students engaged in journalism studies or young graduates ready to embark on a full-time media career.

FISU will cover the cost of travel from the candidate’s home to Kazan and back, while the Kazan OC will provide accommodation and meals.
