What we support?

The aim of the Heinz-Kühn-Foundation is to support the training and professional development of junior journalists. 

The foundation awards scholarships to young journalists from North-Rhine-Westphalia for six-week or three-month reporting trips in developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

The foundation also provides funds to enable candidates from developing countries to gain professional journalism experience in North-Rhine-Westphalia for up to three months.

Heinz-Kühn-Foundation scholarships are intended to enable junior journalists to further their professional development and continue training in new surroundings, and to gain a first-hand and in-depth knowledge of the customs, opinions and way of life in other countries.

Who is eligible?

Young journalists from North-Rhine-Westphalia and developing countries are eligible for a scholarship if they satisfy the following requirements:

  • have a keen interest in development issues;
  • have already gained substantial professional experience in journalism (a completed college education is desirable);
  • are not older than 35 years of age; and,
  • have a good command of the official language of their host country (candidates from abroad must at least have a basic knowledge of the German language).

What does the scholarship include?

Scholarship holders get

  • a lump-sum contribution towards living expenses in the host country (with scholarship payments covering training and living expenses in the host country);
  • a lump-sum allowance for flight and travelling expenses (the foundation pays a return air ticket for candidates from abroad);
  • an allowance to cover costs of research materials (e.g. literature);
  • an allowance for trips within the host country; and,
  • (if neccessary, for scholarship holders from abroad) a German language course of up to four months at the Düsseldorf or Bonn based Goethe-Institut.

In the lead up to the scholarship and throughout the duration of the scholarship, the Heinz-Kühn-Foundation will provide support.

What are the obligations of German scholarship holders

Scholarship holders from North-Rhine-Westphalia have to determine and agree with the foundation a plan for their training and professional development in their host country and to follow this plan during the scholarship to the best of their ability. They also undertake to submit a detailed report of their stay in the host country within six weeks of completing the scholarship. All reports from scholarship holders are published in the yearbook of the Heinz-Kühn-Foundation.
