Journalists can face many dangers for exercising their fundamental right to freedom of expression. Due to repression their journalistic work may be under threat and they may urgently need to leave their home country. To help them find protection and be able to continue their work we offer an Emergency Scholarship, usually for a limited period of three months.
The scholarship aims to help journalists in need, enabling them to at least temporarily escape threats and repressive measures and providing support if they want to make a fresh start in Germany. Our Assistance Desk team provides support when it comes to bureaucratic hurdles and puts scholarship holders in contact with other journalists and media.
If you are a journalist in need, you can contact us via email and we will get in touch with you to find out whether our scholarship is suitable for you.
