Journalists from the Balkans can apply for a reporting fellowship on justice

The Balkan Fellowship for Journalistic Excellence program gives 10 journalists from Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania and Serbia the opportunity to investigate stories at home or abroad with funded research, travel expenses and career development seminars in Berlin and Vienna.

The fellowship also aims to develop and support Balkan reporting on complex reform issues that have regional and EU significance.

This year's applicants should explore issues surrounding justice in their country – in government, in business, within society, among interest groups, between individuals and within families – and draw parallels to the situation in neighboring countries and the EU.

Fellows will receive €2,000 (about US$2,762), and another €2,000 for travel and research expenses. Applicants must be proficient in English.
