Experienced journalists across the Balkans are invited to apply for the fifth annual Balkan Fellowship for Journalistic Excellence programme. This year’s topic is justice. This is a Robert Bosch Stiftung and ERSTE Foundation initiative in cooperation with the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network, BIRN.
Applicants are encouraged to consider the theme in broad terms and submit original story proposals exploring issues surrounding the delivery of and access to justice – in both legal and social contexts. Journalists selected – by an independent committee – to take part in the fellowship will receive a €2000 bursary, up to another €2000 for travel expenses and will attend career development seminars in Berlin and Vienna.
In addition, the top three articles, again judged by an independent committee, will attract awards of €4000,€3000 and €1000. The deadline for applying is the 1st of March 2011.
