Journalists from the United Kingdom and Germany can apply for a work exchange program.

The George Weidenfeld Bursary, organized by the International Journalists' Programmes (IJP), gives British and German journalists the opportunity to gain work experience in each other's country. Participants will gain valuable insight into the media, politics, economy and culture of the host country.

The selected journalists will work for three months at one of IJP's partner media organizations and will also attend an orientation Oct. 18 to 20 in London.

Each participant will receive EUR3,800, which is expected to cover most travel, accommodation and living expenses.

Applicants must be between 18 and 40 years years old and contribute regularly as a staff or freelance journalist to German or British media.

German candidates must be fluent in English.

The deadline is July 15.
