Travel grants for Ukrainian journalists

Sector: Media
Type: Grant
Location: EU
Deadline: Finished
Organiser: International Press Institute

This is an opportunity to improve skills at a professional event in the EU. Get an internship at a Berlin media outlet, gather information for a story in a Polish archive, or meet colleagues at a counter-propaganda conference in the Czech capital — the choice is yours. Organisers will cover expenses so money doesn't get in the way of your progress.

The programme is managed by the International Press Institute (IPI) with the support of the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). This is one of the thousands of EU opportunities for Ukraine.
