felloship for Journalistic Excellencce

Reporting Democracy stated: "The Fellowship program is expanding. After 14 years of supporting journalists across the Balkans, we are now also accepting applications from Visegrad Group countries — Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia."

The Fellowship for Journalistic Excellence provides financial and editorial support to professional journalists who have strong ideas for cross-border stories. This year’s theme is the Rule of Law.

Send us your application with your proposal by March 10.

Each year, 10 journalists are chosen through open competition to receive funding and professional support to conduct in-depth research and write journalistic stories that reveal something new about our world — or that reveals the familiar in a new light.

As well as answering the who, what, when, where and why of your story, your proposal should answer the question: so what? Why should your readers care?
