The International Journalists’ Programme (IJP) is offering a travel and work fellowship for up to five young journalists from the Middle East to spend a two-month period in Germany. The Middle East Fellowship is a collaboration between the IJP and governmental institutions, foundations, and sponsors in Germany and the Middle East. At the same time, the fellowship is being offered to journalists in Germany, who can apply to spend a two-month period in the Middle East.

The fellowship is intended to enable young journalists to familiarize themselves with the political issues in Germany at an early stage of their careers. This will raise awareness of the relations between Germany and the Middle East in young media multipliers and will give them a personal insight into the mentality, culture, and everyday life in Germany and the European Union.

The practical part of the Middle East Fellowship is ensuring contact with colleagues in the region, and it is hoped that this connection will be maintained in future years.
