Journalists from across Europe and the United States are now invited
to apply for the journalism fellowships of the Journalisten-Kolleg
at the Freie Universitaet Berlin, which are being offered this year
for the fourth time. Participants receive the opportunity to take
a leave of absence from their professional positions for two semesters
to spend one sabbatical year at the Freie Universitaet Berlin in
the pursuit of knowledge and major research projects. At the same
time, the programme provides the opportunity to engage in intensive
networking with professional colleagues from eastern and western
Europe and the United States.
The programme starts in October 2002 and ends in July 2003. Highly
qualified journalists, in both full and freelance employment, with
several years of professional experience are entitled to apply.
The most important element of the application is an exposé for a
scientific-journalistic project, which is to be pursued in Berlin.
Depending on the level of professional experience, the European
Journalism Fellowships are endowed with the monthly payment of DM
1700,-, DM 3000,- or DM 5000,- for the duration of ten months. In
addition, foreign participants are invited to take part in a one-week
information trip through Germany.

TV and radio stations in Hungary, Russia, Bulgaria, Poland, the
