Deadline: 

March 12, 2018

Journalists from the Balkans can apply for a reporting fellowship.

The Balkan Fellowship for Journalistic Excellence program gives 10 journalists from Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Greece and Serbia the opportunity to investigate stories at home or abroad with funded research, travel expenses and international seminars.

The fellowship also aims to develop and support Balkan reporting on complex reform issues that have regional and EU significance.

This year's applicants should explore issues based on the theme of truth in an era of fake news and "alternative facts."

Fellows will receive EUR2,000 and another EUR2,000 for travel and research expenses. Applicants must be proficient in English.

The deadline is March 12.
