The German non-profit organization IJP would like to announce its seventh special fellowship for journalists interested in reporting in the field of climate and energy.

The bursary is offered to up to ten journalists from Croatia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, and Slovenia with a passion for climate and energy topics. During the six to eight-week stay abroad, participants from Central Eastern Europe will work at a German host media organization and at the same time report as correspondents for their home media. In return, German journalists participating in the programme, will spend up to two months at a host media organization in one of the Central Eastern European countries mentioned above.

Journalists, who are granted the climate & energy bursary, will receive a deeper and more detailed insight into the fields as well as their host region and get the opportunity to work and specialize topically and internationally alike. Participants are also welcome to pursue a transnational research project on a common topic during their fellowship.

The application deadline is on 1 May 2024. For more information, please click on the following links:
