Would you like to go off the beaten path, get to the bottom of things, and give your readers a never-before-seen look at Central and Eastern Europe or China? Or have you discovered a topic in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland that your audience in Central and Eastern Europe or China has to hear about? Would it be easier to conduct research on the story as part of an international team than by going it alone?
We are looking for active journalists who want to go on location to learn, ask questions, dig deeper, and make discoveries in order to incorporate their findings into nuanced political or economic reporting that really gets to the heart of the issue. The Robert Bosch Stiftung is supporting research projects carried out by print and online journalists for the purpose of preparation for publishing articles in Central and Eastern Europe and China, as well as research with the goal of publishing articles in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
Journalists can apply for research grants of between 2,000 and 7,000 euros.
The deadline for applications is October 15, 2012.
A selection committee will make its decisions and inform all applicants by December 15, 2012.
