European Journalism-Fellowships in Berlin

Deadline for applications is February 28, 2015

News from Feb 03, 2015

Journalists from across Europe, the United States, Russia and the Arabic region are invited to apply for the European Journalism-Fellowships, offered by the International Center for Journalism at Freie Universität Berlin. Participants are given the opportunity to take a two-semester leave from their professional positions and spend a sabbatical year of research at Freie Universität Berlin, widening their knowledge while pursuing a major research project. At the same time, the programme enables participants to network with professional international colleagues.

The programme starts in October 2015 and ends in July 2016. Highly qualified journalists in either staff positions or freelance employment with several years of professional experience are eligible to apply. The most important element of the fellowship application is an exposé for an academic-journalistic research project to be pursued in Berlin. Applications can be submitted in German or in English. Written proof certifying good knowledge of the German language is required for participation.

The closing deadline for applications is February 28, 2015
