Young journalists can apply for this fellowship.

The Internationale Journalisten-Programme (IJP) offers the Marion Gräfin Dönhoff Fellowship for young journalists. The aim of the program is to give young journalists an idea of the politics, economy, culture and social life of Germany, and give them an opportunity to gain work experience in foreign newsrooms.

Staff or freelance journalists ages 23 to 35 from Russia, Ukraine, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and other CIS and Baltic countries can participate in the program. Applicants must have excellent knowledge of the German language.

The program will start in October 2018. Fellows will intern in German newsrooms and work as foreign correspondents covering events in Germany for their countries’ media.

Participants will receive a stipend of EUR3,800, which will cover travel expenses, health insurance and accommodations.

The deadline is April 15.
