Applications are open for the IJP German-Central Eastern European Bursary 2023. The program is for journalists interested in reporting in the field of climate and energy. The scholarships are funded by EUKI (European Climate Initiative).
The bursary offers this opportunity for up to ten journalists from Germany, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Slovakia and Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania with a passion for climate and energy topics. Journalists, who are granted the climate & energy bursary, will receive a deeper and more detailed insight into the field and get the opportunity to work and specialize topically and internationally alike. They are also welcome to pursue transnational research on a common topic during their fellowship.
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.
