The International Journalists’ Programmmes (IJP) is offering for the nineteenth time a travel and work fellowship for young journalists from Israel to spend a two-month period in Germany. The fellowship is part of the Middle East Fellowship of IJP. The fellowships for journalists from Germany and Israel are named in honour of the journalist Ernst Cramer and the former mayor of Jerusalem Teddy Kollek and their exemplary dedication to the intensification of German-Israeli relations.
The fellowship is intended to enable young journalists to familiarise with the political issues in Germany at an early stage of their career. This will raise awareness of aspects of German-Israeli relations in future multipliers and will give them a personal insight into mentality, culture and everyday life in Germany and the European Union. The practical part of the fellowship ensures contact with colleagues in the region, and it is hoped this contact will be maintained in future years. This is also the intention of future alumni reunions in Berlin.
The fellowship begins October 27, 2022 with an introductory event in Berlin together with the German fellows. This is followed by a fellowship lasting at least two months with a German media outlet. The branch of the media (newspaper, radio, TV, magazine) will be selected by the fellows, and the actual place of work will then be decided by the organiser in consultation with the fellows. There will be the possibility to extend the stay on an individual basis.
