The International Journalists Programmes (Internationale Journalisten-Programme / IJP) invites young journalists from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine to participate in the Marion Gräfin Dönhoff Fellowship.
For two months (October-November), young journalists and bloggers from these countries will intern at a German media outlet. This will give them an insight into politics, economics, culture and public life in Germany and familiarise them with German journalistic standards and principles.
The scholarship is a one-off payment of €3,800. The funds will cover the costs of travel, accommodation and board in Germany, health insurance and visa fees. There is no remuneration for work in the host media.
The programme is named after Marion Dönhoff (1909 – 2002), who was for many years publisher of the German national ‘Die Zeit’ weekly.
The deadline for applications is 25 June.
