The International Press Institute (IPI) is offering support for Ukrainian journalists to carry out short-term visits in Europe focused on:

  • carrying out short-term exchange visits to European media with the purpose of developing newsroom knowledge relevant to the long-term sustainability of Ukrainian media outlets and increasing links between Ukrainian media and European and international media outlets and media networks.
  • attending professional conferences, summits, summer schools, and workshops.
  • supporting research trips, study trips, or creative retreats aimed at the development of journalistic content (including long-form and analytical pieces, audio-visual content, book proposals, etc.)
  • supporting emergency relocation

Journalists wishing to carry out short-term newsroom exchange visits may arrange their own exchanges. Additionally, IPI offers to help match applicants with members of IPI’s network in Europe, including our Central Europe Independent Media Network, based on the applicant’s needs.

Terms and Conditions

Average grant amounts are expected to be in the range of 500 – 2500 USD, however, amounts requested outside this range will be considered on an individual basis.

Grant recipients would need to provide IPI with a short narrative and financial report at their project’s end and supporting documentation, such as travel tickets, accommodation, and fee payments.

In general, the grant will be provided in the form of a direct payment to the applicant. However, limited logistical support is available for successful applicants who cannot arrange their travel and accommodation.
