Through access to information, data and new perspectives, the European Journalism Centre (EJC) believes journalists can help drive societal change. Qualified journalism informs, fosters public debate, and creates awareness through independent and critical reporting.
That is why the European Journalism Centre and the Jacobs Foundation, which globally promotes child and youth development, jointly established a new journalism fellowship programme. In 2019, we managed six fellowships for professional journalists from Germany and the UK specialising in education and learning topics, funded by the Jacobs Foundation.
By enhancing their skills and connecting them to experts in the field, the EJC supported the selected journalists working for Spiegel Online, Die Zeit, Agentur für Bildungsjournalismus, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Nursery World, Children & Young People Now, and other outlets.
