It has now been two years since we launched the Lénaïc Fund for Quality Journalism to help young EU female graduates to kick-start their career in Brussels.
It’s been over two months since I learned that I would be the fourth recipient of the Lénaïc Fund for Quality Journalism, and I still feel as fortunate and thankful today as back then.
My thoughts often go back to the cold Polish winter when I made the decision that led me to enjoy the summer in Brussels: The decision to apply for the Lénaïc Fund for Quality Journalism fellowship.
Why we ran for the #LenaicFund
My last month on the fellowship has already begun and this precious time is about to come to an end.
My experience as the first recipient of the Lénaïc Fund for Journalism has come to an end and I have only positive things to say about these months. I perfectly remember the moment when I was told I had been selected.
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.
The Lénaïc Fund for Quality Journalism 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.
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.
