What we fund

The Lénaïc Fund for Quality Journalism provides a fellowship for 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 selected participant will benefit from:

  • A financial bursary of up to € 5.000 
  • A fellowship placement of up to 6 months in one of a number of Brussels-based media organisations with a focus on EU affairs
  • The sixth placement will run from the beginning of October 2019 to the beginning of March 2020

Each beneficiary of the Lénaïc Fund for Quality Journalism will have to write monthly reports outlining the achievements during the fellowship. These reports will be published on the fund’s website. In addition, each fellow will regularly be asked to contribute to the social media channels of the Lénaïc Fund for Quality Journalism, during as well as after completing the fellowship.
