The International Journalists Programmes is inviting Applications for the Israel Fellowship to enable young journalists to familiarize themselves with the political issues in Germany at an early stage of their career.
In 2021 IJP are offering for the eighteenth time a travel and work fellowship for young journalists from Israel to spend a two-month period in Germany.
They are doing this in cooperation with governmental institutions, foundations and sponsors in Germany and Israel. At the same time, the fellowship is being offered to journalists in Germany, who can apply to spend a two-month period in Israel.
The fellowship is part of the Middle East Fellowship of IJP. The fellowships for journalists from Germany and Israel are named in honour of the journalist Ernst Cramer and the former mayor of Jerusalem Teddy Kollek and their exemplary dedication to the intensification of German-Israeli relations. This will raise awareness of aspects of German-Israeli relations in future multipliers and will give them a personal insight into mentality, culture and everyday life in Germany and the European Union.
The practical part of the fellowship ensures contact with colleagues in the region, and it is hoped this contact will be maintained in future years. This is also the intention of future alumni reunions in Berlin.
Mode of Payment
- The fellowship carries a single payment of 4,000 Euro per person.
- This sum is intended to cover a large proportion of the travel costs, board and lodging.
- Fellows are expected to contribute a certain amount themselves.
- There will be no payment for the individual’s work on location as a journalist.
- Applications may be submitted by any Israeli citizen aged 21 or over who is working as a regular employee, trainee or journalist for Israeli or Arab media.
- The maximum age is 37 years. Two candidates from Germany will be selected and two from Israel.
