Journalists who are interested in reporting on humanitarian issues can apply for this trip.

The European Journalism Centre (EJC), in cooperation with the European Commission's Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department (ECHO), is organizing a press visit to Turkey June 7 to 11. 

The initiative aims to raise awareness and understanding of the EU's humanitarian assistance to Syrian refugees in Turkey that remain outside of camp settings.

A total of eight journalists will be selected to report from the field and meet organizations and stakeholders working on the ground. Applicants must be from the EU28.

The organizers will cover travel, accommodation, most meals, visas and insurance.

The deadline is May 12.
