The International Journalists Programmes is accepting applications for German-South Eastern European Bursary.
The German non-profit organization IJP (International Journalists’ Programmes) would like to announce a fellowship for journalists interested in reporting in the field of climate and energy.
Journalists, who are granted the climate & energy bursary, will receive a deeper and more detailed insight into the field and get the opportunity to work and specialize topically and internationally alike.
They are also welcome to pursue a transnational research on a common topic during their fellowship.
The scholarship programme starts with a thematic introductory conference (presumably mid-September 2021).
Subsequently, the participating journalists will begin their stay at their respective journalistic host organizations. Journalists from Germany will stay at a host media in one of the other countries for the time of the scholarship while the journalists from those countries will spend their time in a media in Germany.
These media are selected by the IJP in consideration of the interests, qualifications and wishes of the fellows.
While being embedded partly in the workflow of the host media, the scholars will work on their own journalistic projects and mainly report for media in their home country.
During the six to eight weeks of the stay, the journalists will get to know the host country better, establish contacts to local journalists and deepen their knowledge about climate and energy issues.
Mode of Payment
- Each fellow will receive a stipend of 3.800 Euro to help cover travel costs, accommodation and personal expenses during his or her stay.
- The participant must cover any additional costs.
- The application is open to any journalist from the below mentioned countries, working for any print, radio, online or TV media (employed or freelancer). Fluency in German or one of the other countries’ official languages is not expected, though helpful for successful application. At least workable knowledge of English is essential.
- The bursary offers this opportunity for up to ten journalists from Germany, Romania, Bulgaria and Serbia with a passion for climate and energy topics.
