Call for Transatlantic Media Fellowship 2021. Transatlantic Media Fellowships are coming back to the real world. As Germany is headed into elections this fall, and as the Biden administration is changing the course of US domestic and foreign policy, Heinrich Boll Stiftung is thrilled to see that travel seems to be possible after a year of digital-only fellowships in 2020. In this transition period, Heinrich Boll Stiftung accepts applications for either travel-based or virtual research and reporting.

The Transatlantic Media Fellowship program supports well-researched transatlantic journalism. As in previous years, the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung Washington, DC, will give a select number of journalists from the United States, Canada, and Germany the opportunity for on-the-ground reporting relevant to the foundation’s work on climate & energy policy, democracy & social policy, or technology & digital policy. They will not be able to offer a specific fellowship in the field of foreign and security policy this year, but plan to include this area again in 2022.


  • A stipend of $3,500 for an on-the-ground fellowship (including transatlantic travel)
  • A stipend of $1,500 for a digital fellowship (virtual interviews, no travel)


The program seeks journalists with a strong track record of publications who offer new perspectives on transatlantic policy debates. Fellowships are open to journalists in any medium.

Applicants should be based

  • in the United States or Canada and demonstrate a strong motivation for engaging in research and reporting about Europe.
  • in Germany and demonstrate a strong motivation for engaging in research and reporting about the United States or Canada.

Special Considerations

Journalists with the following features will have special consideration to journalists

  • From regional or local media outlets
  • From diverse backgrounds who can offer lesser-heard perspectives
  • Who may not otherwise have the opportunity to conduct transatlantic research

Issues Areas

  • Climate & Energy Policy
  • Democracy & Social Policy
  • Technology & Digital Policy
