Fellowships: "Climate & Energy Policy", "Foreign & Security Policy" and "Democracy & Social Policy"

Heinrich Boell Foundation North America, a German political foundation, funded a fellowship that we'd like to draw your attention to.

The fellowship and supports journalists in conducting a certain amount of time of research in the EU. It has a strong focus on recruiting journalists with diverse backgrounds who might not otherwise have the opportunity to do international reporting. This year, we're asking fellowship recipients to report on one of these key issues: Climate & Energy Policy, Foreign & Security Policy and Democracy & Social Policy. Please find detailed instructions here.

The deadline for the fellowship is coming up quickly on June 2nd, 2017.
