The 2024 call for applications is closed!

The application deadline for the next round of the Reporting Fellowships has expired. Applications for 2024 are no longer possible!

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) offers two reporting fellowships each year, focusing on a journalistic project. Two media professionals, who are exposed to special difficulties and challenges due to their profession, are invited to Berlin for six months.

The fellowships provide a protected space in which the selected candidates can continue to work on and complete their journalistic project. The project should be realizable within the set time frame of six months (in image, sound, or writing) and highlight new aspects and thematic points that are of relevance for the society. The goal is to publish the project result and, if possible, present it at a public event.

During the fellowship, participants get the chance to dedicate themselves to their journalistic project without pressure. They also have the opportunity to expand their professional network and take advantage of various training opportunities. In addition, psychosocial or psychological support can be taken advantage of during the stay.

At the end of the six months, the fellows return to their home countries strengthened to continue with their journalistic work.


Application deadline: November 19th, 2023 at 11:59pm (CET)
Planned period of stay: May 1st to October 31st, 2024
