The German-Israeli Journalists' FellowshipThe Ernst Cramer & Teddy Kollek Fellowships
In 2017 IJP are offering for the fourteenth time a travel and work fellowship for young journalists from Israel to spend a two-month period in Germany.
We are doing this in cooperation with governmental institutions, foundations and sponsors in Germany and Israel. At the same time, the fellowship is being offered to journalists in Germany, who can apply to spend a two-month period in Israel.
Mode of Payment
The fellowship carries a single payment of 4.000 Euro per person. This sum is intended to cover a large proportion of the travel costs, board and lodging. Fellows are expected to contribute a certain amount themselves. There will be no payment for the individual's work on location as a journalist.
Applications may be submitted by any Israeli citizen aged 21 or over who is working as a regular employee, trainee or journalist for Israeli or Arab media. The maximum age is 37 years. Two candidates from Germany will be selected and two from Israel.
Applications, for which there is no special form, are to be submitted by June 16, 2017. The application must be accompanied by a passport photo, a detailed curriculum vitae, and a journalistic appraisal written by the head of department or editor-in-chief. The latter should support the application, guarantee temporary leave of absence for the duration of the fellowship, and serve as evidence of journalistic activity. Samples of work may be enclosed. A very good knowledge of English is expected. While a knowledge of German will naturally be welcomed, this is not an essential requirement for an application.
After preliminary selection, the finalists might be invited for a selection interview. Legal action in respect of the final decision shall be barred. Notification will be sent to the successful candidates by mid August, 2017.
All fellows undertake to write, upon their return, a report of at least three pages on their experience, activities and impressions in the country.
