Programme Details

The scholarship programme starts with a thematic introductory conference (presumably mid-October 2023). Subsequently, the participating journalists will begin their stay at their respective journalistic host organizations. Journalists from Germany will stay at a host media in one of the other countries for the time of the scholarship while the journalists from those countries will spend their time in a media in Germany. These media are selected by the IJP in consideration of the interests, qualifications and wishes of the fellows. While being embedded partly in the workflow of the host media, the scholars will work on their own journalistic projects and mainly report for media in their home country. During the six to eight weeks of the stay, the journalists will get to know the host country better, establish contacts to local journalists and deepen his or her knowledge about climate and energy issues.

The programme concludes with a final meeting (presumably mid-December 2023). The participants are asked to deliver a three-page report of their experiences. It should also include all contributions produced during their stay. After the exchange, they encourage the participants to stay in touch with each other through the IJP alumni network through which they will have the chance to meet many of IJP’s former scholars in Germany and more than 40 other countries.
