Working South African journalists between 25 and 40 years old can apply for a fellowship.

The International Journalists' Programmes (IJP) offers fellowships for up to six young journalists from Southern African states to work in German newsrooms and produce stories for media in their home countries.

The two-month program aims to shape cross-cultural understanding and to foster relations between Africa and Germany.

Fellows will receive a fixed payment of EUR€3,000 (about US$3,800). This is expected to cover most travel and living expenses. To receive the full grant, participants must write a report of at least three pages and provide copies of their published journalistic work after returning home.

Applicants must be fluent in English. German language abilities are an advantage, but not mandatory.

The application deadline is January 15.
