The EJC runs two fellowship programmes: one in cooperation with Nihon Shinbun Kyokai (NSK), a Japanese Newspaper Publishers and Editors Association based in Tokyo, and the other in collaboration with the Korea Press Foundation (KPF), a Seoul-based, non-profit, and non-partisan organisation, dedicated to the promotion of professional journalism in Korean media.
Our role, at the EJC, is to host a minimum of two journalists per semester, one from each of these organisations. The fellows work at the EJC’s Brussels’ office and are issued temporary press accreditations for the duration of their stays. This allows them to keep abreast of EU related events and developments; report for their media corporation in their home country; travel extensively throughout Europe in order to cover other European issues; attend any of the seminars organised by the EJC as an observer; and become involved in the EJC's day to day life, participating in staff meetings and other events.
In return, both KPF and NSK organise an annual, two-week study visit for a total of six and four European journalists respectively. During the trip, the journalists attend lectures and events covering politics, economy, trade, and cultural affairs, the main objective of the programme being to promote a better understanding of South Korea and Japan
