The German-American Fulbright Commission is offering scholarships for U.S. journalism students to attend a program in Berlin on Nov. 13-19, 2016. The program offers young U.S. journalists the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the political, economic and cultural environment in Germany/Europe with a special focus on the German media landscape and the role of media in politics and society. This intensive program consists of a series of seminars, presentations, and visits to important German media, and German political and cultural institutions. The program will be conducted in English.
The grant provided by the Fulbright Commission covers program costs including hotel accommodation, round-trip transportation from the U.S. to Germany and back, local transportation, health insurance coverage during the seminar and a small incidental allowance. The application deadline is June 7. The program description and the application form can be accessed at: www.fulbright.de/togermany/grants/berlin-capital-program/
