The Southern African Journalists' Bursary
African Bursary » Bursary for Journalist
The Southern African Journalists' Bursary: For the tenth time the International Journalists‘ Programmes (IJP) offer a bursary to up to six young Southern African (SADC-Member States: Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe) and up to five young German journalists.
For two months the Southern African delegates will have the chance to work in Germany.
They will be integrated into the day-to-day journalism of their host newsroom while also researching stories for their home media.
It is assumed that all candidates have a strong command of the English language.
German language abilities are an advantage but are not mandatory.
The Southern African-German Journalists‘ Programme is a multiyear effort to shape an integrated understanding of the other country and region and to foster relations between Africa and Germany.
It has been offered as a response to concerns about an increasing political and cultural detachment between Africa and Europe.
The bursary is intended to enable young journalists to gain valuable insights into the political, economical, cultural as well as the social fabric of the host country.
All journalists from Southern Africa (SADC Member States) between the age of 25 and 35 who regularly work for a media organisation can apply.
But they must be either German or Southern Africans.
