Journalism exchange scholarship opens for African and German participants

International Journalists’ Programmes (IJP) offer scholarship to six young African and five young German journalists. For two months the African participants will have the chance to work in Germany and will be integrated into the day-to-day journalism of their host newsroom while also researching stories for their home media.

Journalists, aged 25 to 40, from Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Germany can apply.

The International Journalists’ Programmes are offering fellowships to up to six young African journalists and up to five young German journalists. The Southern African-German Journalists‘ Bursary is intended to enable young journalists to gain insights into the political, economic, cultural and social fabric of the host country.

For two months, the African delegates will have the chance to work in Germany, followed by German delegates in Africa. They will be integrated into the day-to-day journalism of their host newsroom while researching stories for their home media.

The delegates will receive a fixed payment of €3,000 to cover most of their travel, accommodation and living expenses.

Candidates must have a strong command of English. German is an advantage but not mandatory.

The deadline is 15 February 2020.
