Journalists ages 25-40 from Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Germany can apply.

The International Journalists? Programmes (IJP) is offering fellowships to up to six young Southern African and up to five young German journalists. The Southern African-German Journalists? Bursary is intended to enable young journalists to gain insights into the political, economic, cultural and social fabric of the host country.

For two months, 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 researching stories for their home media.

The delegates will receive a fixed payment of EUR3,000 to cover most of their travel, accommodation and living expenses.

Candidates must have a strong command of English. German is an advantage but not mandatory.

The deadline is Feb. 15.
