This is the eighth time that BIRN in cooperation with the ERSTE Foundation and the Open Society Foundation is providing 10 journalism fellowships in Balkans. The annual theme for this year’s programme is “Generations”.
Hajrullahu said this is a great opportunity for journalists to apply for this fellowship and to create new contacts in the region and beyond. Hajrullahu also explained this year’s fellowship has expanded to include journalists from Greece – in addition to those from other Balkan countries.
“Every journalist from different Balkan countries has the possibility to present their work/proposals and in the end they will be selected by professionals on a board of experienced journalist and editors”, Hajrullahu said.
