Fellowship Programmes
The EJC runs two fellowship programmes in collaboration with Japanese Nihon Shinbun Kyokai and South-Korean Korea Press Foundation. These exchange programmes enable Japanese and South Korean media workers to get acquainted with EU politics and media culture, while also promoting a greater understanding of South Korea and Japan among European journalists visiting these countries.
