Candidate Profile

Experienced journalists from Eastern and Western Europe as well as the United States can apply for the European Journalism Fellowships. Ineligible, regrettably, are media practitioners working in the fields of public relations, trade journals, government agencies or official publications, or as teachers of journalism.

The EJF target group includes highly qualified and professionally successful journalists who anticipate being active in key positions in the media, and who can expect to significantly influence the journalistic quality of media production, whether as reporters, correspondents, or executive editors.

The European Journalism Fellowships are open to all candidates who are enthusiastic about their profession; who want to be involved in European unification; and who would like to pause in mid-career in order to engage in research, study, and reflection in a stress-free environment, thereby acquiring additional professional tools and capacities that will enhance their professional activities.
