January 4, 2022

Young journalists from the United States, Canada, Germany can apply for this fellowship.

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) seeks applications for the Arthur F. Burns Fellowship, an exchange program that gives media professionals from the United States, Canada and Germany an opportunity to report from and travel in each other’s countries.

The purpose of the program is to increase public understanding of the two regions through mass media. Successful applicants will report for their home and host news organizations from across the Atlantic. The next fellowship will take place in August and September.

Applicants must be print, online or broadcast journalists between 21 and 40-years-old. German language proficiency is not required, but it is encouraged. Selected fellows not fluent in German will spend the first two weeks of the fellowship in intensive German language classes.

Each fellow will receive a US$4,000 living stipend and an additional US$1,200 for airfare. The program also covers lodging in Washington for a joint one-week group orientation session at the end of July.

ICFJ plans to support diverse new voices and fresh perspectives, therefore they want to encourage journalists with diverse backgrounds and journalists of color to apply.

The deadline for German applicants is Feb. 1.

For U.S. and Canadian applicants, the deadline is March 1.
