The goal of Reporters Without Borders Germany is to help journalists protect themselves against harassment and persecution and enable them to continue or resume their journalistic work in their home country. We support journalists through scholarships that give them the opportunity to train and expand their skills, make a fresh start in their career, or simply take some time out from stressful working conditions.

Berlin Scholarship Program

Digital threats pose a risk to the work of journalists all over the world. Reporters Without Borders Germany has created the Berlin Scholarship Programme to help journalists protect themselves online.


Rest and Refuge Scholarship

The Rest and Refuge Scholarship gives journalists from war zones and crisis regions the opportunity to recover in Berlin for three months. The time of refuge and peace can – but does not have to – be used for writing and thinking.
