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 ten months.
EJO is a network of research institutions. It builds bridges between the different journalism cultures across Europe and the U.S. and between media researchers and practitioners. By making results of media research accessible, by studying “best practices” in journalism and by studying and comparing trends and in the media industry, the European Journalism Observatory (EJO – www.ejo-online.eu and www.ejo.ch) contributes to the improvement of quality in journalism and to a better understanding of the media by the public. EJO’s work is focussed on the needs of journalists and media managers, but it also serves students and other target groups who are interested in the development of media, reducing the gap between communications research and the world outside the ivory tower. As a joint venture, EJO partner institutions offer a multilingual website in ten European languages.
Instead of providing one project idea as part of their application, applicants for this fellowship hand in several story ideas on which they would like to work during their stay in Berlin. During the fellowship, the “EJO correspondent in residence at EJF” will contribute, in close cooperation with one of the EJO editors, monthly
According to the needs of EJO, the fellow may also get involved in editing work. This work should not exceed 20/25 percent of the time budget of the fellow.
Decisions about this fellowship will be made jointly by a jury of two EJO and two EJF media experts and one external journalist who is invited on mutual agreement between the EJO and the EJF director.
