Print, broadcast or freelance journalists in the United States and Austria ages 21 to 38 can apply for a six-week fellowship.
The International Center for Journalists and the Kuratorium für Journalistenausbildung (KfJ)
seeks applicants for their U.S.-Austrian Journalism Exchange
Fellowships, which gives journalists an opportunity to report from and
travel in each other's countries.
The program is open to journalists who are employed by or freelance
for a newspaper, news magazine, broadcast station or news agency.
Applicants must have demonstrated journalistic talent with at least
three years of experience, and a strong interest in U.S.-European
affairs. Foreign language proficiency is not required, but it is
strongly preferred and will be taken into consideration during the
Fellows receive adequate living stipends during their fellowship
assignments. The program also pays directly for international and
domestic travel expenses, living expenses in Washington and Vienna, as
well as insurance costs and cultural and transportation allowances.
After receiving a joint orientation session in Washington, the
American fellows travel to Vienna and the Austrian journalists begin
their fellowship in Florida at the GOP National Convention to report for
their home media organizations. For six weeks, fellows will work at
host newspapers, magazines, and radio and television stations under the
supervision of an editor. The program ends with all fellows reuniting in
Vienna for a reception and final program evaluation.
The fellowship program is funded by donations from Austrian
government and U.S. government agencies, and private-sector corporations
The application deadline is March 6.
