Willingness and commitment to take part in both study tours is mandatory.
Application deadline: 11 December 2023 (midnight CET).
A total of 12 Ukrainian journalists can join the fellowship program. All travel, accommodation, and catering costs during the study tours will be covered. We are ready to provide an official invitation for male journalists in Ukraine but cannot guarantee that the permit to leave the country will be issued.
Working language: English.
The goal of these visits is to foster and strengthen lasting connections between Western European and Ukrainian media, while also enhancing the comprehension of the social and political dynamics within the respective countries.
Selected fellows will visit independent and public editorial offices, and meet with representatives of civil society, EU- institutions and experts. In addition, networking events with facilitated speed-datings, working sessions or discussions will be organised in each city.
“I learned the strong and weak sides of the Russian-Ukraine war coverage in different EU media. I also discovered how EU officials see the current and future cooperation with Ukraine and how they help Ukraine. Sometimes it was inspiring and occasionally disappointing. But it is great that, after all, I understood many essential things.”Dariia Hirna-Krylevska
We offer a continuous flow of information about Ukraine's discources in EU-countries, not only through study visits, but also via our weekly newsletter, "What about Ukraine". This newsletter is designed to be an inspiration source for collaborative projects about Ukraine for Western European audiences.
Our grant programme, with financial support of 5000 euros per applicants' team, aims to facilitate the realisation of such projects. Every month, we select high-quality journalistic materials with a focus on Ukraine from teams consisting of at least one Ukrainian and one EU journalist.
The "Europe-Ukraine Desk" is also a constantly evolving living network of strong professional contacts between Ukrainian and EU journalists, foreign correspondents, and media outlets.
Should you have any questions, please address them to Oksana Mamchenkova at email@example.com.
We are looking forward to your applications
