Knight International Press Fellowship: Pacific Islands
As a Knight Fellow, Schnellinger conducted a multi-nation needs assessment survey of Pacific Island journalists that was the basis of subsequent project designs.
She also worked directly on skill-building with journalists in Samoa, Vanuatu, Tonga, the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and Fiji, and co-facilitated a training-of-trainers during the annual Pacific Islands News Association conference.
Based on these experiences, Schnellinger wrote a self-help guide for reporters and editors in the region.
