Milena Jesenská Fellowships for Journalists

The Milena Jesenská Fellowship program offers European journalists time off from their professional duties in order to pursue in-depth research on a topic of their choice. For the first time journalists from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Turkey are also eligible to apply. Applicants are asked to relate their proposals to one of the main research fields of the IWM (for details please see here). Additionally, this year proposals which focus on human rights are strongly encouraged. The call is directed towards cultural journalists, with the term “cultural” being interpreted in a broad sense to encompass a wide variety of intellectual and artistic fields. However, applicants’ work may also deal with societal issues of European relevance.

Milena Jesenská Fellowships are intended as an award for excellence and are directed towards experienced journalists. Applicants must have worked in print, broadcast or online journalism for several years and must be able to provide proof of their outstanding professional record. Applications by entry-level journalists or students will be rejected.

The fellows are invited to spend three months at the IWM in Vienna, Austria. They will receive a stipend in the amount of EUR 7,630 and are provided with an office, access to e-mail and internet, in-house research facilities, and other relevant resources in Vienna. Travel grants of up to EUR 1,820 can be paid for research trips to neighboring countries.
