DEADLINE: Heinrich Böll Foundation's Transatlantic Media Fellowships

Event Date: 
March 15, 2024

The Transatlantic Media Fellowship program supports well-researched transatlantic journalism. As in previous years, the Heinrich Böll Foundation, Washington, DC will give a select number of journalists from the United States, Canada and Germany the opportunity for on-the-ground reporting relevant to the foundation’s work on democracy & social policy, digital policy, foreign & security policy, and climate & energy policy. We accept applications for either travel-based or virtual research and reporting.

Two types of fellowships are available: On-the-ground fellowship (includes transatlantic travel) OR digital fellowship.

This year we will continue offering the Transatlantic Media Fellowship to journalists from Africa and Latin America in order to expand our understanding of the Transatlantic. The focus for fellows from Africa and Latin America will be on Global Development Policy or Digital Policy issues related to the Global South and the USA/Germany. For those interested, please see the description in the Issue Areas section – applicants from Africa and Latin America have a different set of rules and stipend amount than the rest.


We seek journalists with a strong track record of publications who offer new perspectives on transatlantic policy debates. Fellowships are open to journalists in any medium.

We especially encourage applications from journalists:

  • working at regional or local media outlets, or freelancers
  • who can offer diverse, lesser-heard perspectives
  • who may not otherwise have the opportunity to conduct transatlantic research

Journalists are responsible for their travel and visa arrangements.

Deadline: Mar 15, 2024.

Details and application.
