Hear from Zosia Wanat, the recipient of our third fellowship

I imagine that today other young female journalists across Europe are asking themselves similar questions, as the deadline for the fourth Lénaïc Fellowship is approaching this week. If you’re one of them, let me give you three main reasons why I am convinced it was a great call – if your doubts are stopping you from applying, you might miss out on a truly amazing adventure.

Hear from Judith Mischke, the recipient of our second fellowship

My last month on the fellowship has already begun and this precious time is about to come to an end. My first thought when I heard about the newly established Lénaïc Fund for Quality Journalism was: what a unique initiative to honour and remember a true talent that has left the world far too early.

The Lénaïc Fund for Quality Journalism

In these days of instability in the world, it is more than ever essential for young journalists to understand the importance of quality journalism by fighting fake news and respecting the ethics of the profession

What we fund

The Lénaïc Fund provides a fellowship to up to two recently graduated young female students from an EU country interested in kick-starting their career in the important profession of EU journalism.

Each beneficiary will have to write a report toward the end of their placement outlining their achievements during the fellowship.

How to apply

If you are a female graduate from an EU country under the age of 28, with the aim to work in EU journalism in Brussels, this fellowship could be for you.

Please send a motivation letter and your CV in English at the following email address: candidate@lenaic.eu
