Transatlantic Media Fellowships
TMN offers visiting fellowships allowing individual European journalists to spend up to three months in the United States to develop and expand their knowledge of America. Fellows spend two weeks at CSIS in Washington, and then travel around the country, with extensive opportunities to meet a wide range of Americans. Fellows usually visit a number of the TMN's partner institutions (universities, colleges, and schools of journalism) in different parts of America. They may be asked to give talks or attend classes at these institutions.
The aim is not to enable journalists to engage in daily news coverage, but rather to help them gain insights into the diverse attitudes of Americans and the ways these attitudes influence the formation of American social and political viewpoints. The fellowships are not intended to finance reporting trips, although most fellows engage in journalistic activities, such as writing blogs or features, while they are on the road.
You may send your application via e-mail, regular mail, or fax. There is no deadline for applications, which may be submitted at any time. Fellows are encouraged to visit the United States in the periods from January through May and from September to mid-December.
