European journalists invited to apply for Korea fellowship programme

The European Journalism Centre (EJC), in conjunction with the Korea Press Foundation (KPF), invites applications from European journalists for the KPF/EJC fellowship programme,  22 August - 3 September 2011.

Aiming to promote a better understanding of Korea, this two-week programme, held in South Korea, will feature a series of seminars led by specialists.  Featured themes of the study trip will include: EU-Korea relations, development and challenges for the EU-Korea Free Trade Agreement (FTA), green growth policy and security on the Korean peninsula.

The more formal aspect of the trip will be complemented by an extensive three-day tour of different social and cultural highlights.

The KPF will cover flight expenses of up to EUR 500 (costs over and above this amount will have to be paid by the individual) as well as accommodation and local transport in Korea.

Applicants must be EU citizens, have at least five years experience as a full-time professional journalist working for an EU media outlet as well as a comprehensive level of spoken and written English, the lingua franca for the trip.

The fellowship programme is open to journalists and editors from written and online media, news agencies and broadcasting companies. Freelance journalists may also apply.

To apply for the KPF/EJC fellowship programme, please complete the application form found at: https://ejcnet.wufoo.com/forms/kpfejc-fellowship-programme/ and include all of the necessary documents by Sunday 29th May at 00.00 CET. Submissions received after this time will not be taken into consideration.

Six European journalists will be selected on the basis of the motivation and concrete ideas for reporting provided at the time of application.
