Since 2012 one fellowship annually is earmarked for a journalist who would like to become a temporary correspondent of the European Journalism Observatory (www.ejo-online.eu), observing in particular recent developments in journalism research in Germany, but also the rapidly changing landscape of journalism and media in Berlin.
The EJO-EJF Fellow receives a monthly stipend of 1.100 € for the duration of 10 months.
