It’s that time of year again! For German journalists the Deadline is Feb. 1, for Americans it is March 1st. As an alum I highly recommend you apply!
The Arthur F. Burns Fellowship program is an exchange of journalists between Germany and the United States, with the primary purpose of increasing public knowledge and understanding about the two countries, and the relations between them, through independent mass media. A parallel goal of the program is to develop reporters who are interested, skilled and informed about U.S.-German and U.S.-European relations.
Each year, the program brings together ten reporters from each country’s media and, following a week-long orientation program in Washington, places them in newsrooms of the other country to work for two months, producing articles and programs for home and foreign audiences.
Alumni of the Burns program constitute a strong and growing network of journalists, many of whom move into positions of greater responsibility in the U.S. and Germany. The program is supported by a board comprised of leaders in journalism, business, diplomacy and government.
Each year 20 outstanding media professionals from the United States and Germany are awarded an opportunity to report from and travel in each other’s countries as part of The Arthur F. Burns Fellowship Program. The program offers 10 young print and broadcast journalists from each country the opportunity to share professional expertise with their colleagues across the Atlantic while working as “foreign correspondents” for their hometown news organizations.
