Deadline: 6 February 2017
Applications are Open for Milena Jesenská Fellowship Program for Journalists in Europe in order to pursue in-depth research on a topic of their choice.
- The Milena Jesenská Fellowship Program offers European journalists time off from their professional duties in order to pursue in-depth research on a topic of their choice.
- The call is directed towards cultural journalists, with the term “cultural” being interpreted in a broad sense to encompass a wide variety of intellectual and artistic fields. However, applicants’ work may also deal with societal issues of European relevance and be related to one of IWM’s main research fields.
- During the next fellowship term (July 2017 – June 2018) four fellows are invited to spend three months each at the IWM in Vienna, Austria.
- They will receive a stipend of EUR 2,500 per month. In addition, the IWM provides them with an office including access to internet, administrative and research facilities as well as other services free of charge.
- Travel grants of up to EUR 1,900 can be paid for project-related research trips.
- Milena Jesenská Fellowships are intended as an award for excellence and are directed towards experienced European journalists (including Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Turkey).
- Applicants must have worked in print, broadcast or online journalism for several years and must have an outstanding professional record.
- Applications by entry-level journalists or students will be rejected.
