The Transatlantic Media Fellowships give American and European journalists the opportunity to conduct research in the European Union (for American journalists) and in the United States (for European journalists). The fellowships are an integral component of the Transatlantic Dialogue Program on Democracy and Social Policy, promoting a vibrant discourse between U.S. and European societies on the shared challenges to our democracies and on the shared values of the transatlantic partnership. The fellowship is open to journalists in any medium eager to report on one of two issues areas: “Migration and Integration” and “Digital Societies”.
The Heinrich Böll Foundation will cover travel and accommodation costs within reason for five days of research in the E.U. or the U.S., subject to final approval of individual travel plans. They also provide an honorarium of $1,000. Each fellowship recipient may decide his or her own dates of travel during November 2015. If requested, they can provide some assistance with setting up meetings in the U.S. and Europe.

- be from an E.U. member state, based in the E.U., and seek to contribute to transatlantic policy debates by reporting about U.S. practices and experiences in one of the two issue areas.
Duration of award(s): Fellowships are awarded for five days to conduct research in the E.U. or the U.S.
