Fellowship sends journalists to Germany [Latin America]

Posted on Sep 17, 2020 in Journalism Basics

Latin American journalists ages 25 to 38 and proficient in German or English can apply for this fellowship.

The Internationale Journalisten-Programme (IJP) seeks to foster relations between Germany and Latin America giving young journalists the opportunity to spend two months in a Berlin-based media, working as correspondents for their outlets back home.

The fellowship will begin late February 2021 with an introductory seminar in Berlin.

Selected candidates will receive EUR3,600 (US$4,265), which should cover airfares, transportation, accommodation and meals.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the IJP might cancel the 2021 edition of the program. If this is the case, selected candidates will complete the program in 2022.

The deadline is Sept. 30.
