Operated by the German-American Fulbright Commission, the Berlin Capital Program (May 23-30, 2020) invites young U.S. journalists and students of journalism to Germany. The weeklong seminar allows them to take a closer look at the German media landscape and gain a deeper awareness of the political, economic and cultural environment in Germany and Europe.  Its goals are to promote a better understanding of transatlantic issues, expand the journalists’ professional perspectives and networks, and help them better “translate” the news on this side of the Atlantic. The program is conducted in English and is fully funded through the Fulbright Commission.
As 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of German reunification, this year´s Berlin Capital Program explores the role of the media in nurturing democracy.  The points for discussion with media professionals include:
  • How do the media impact political decision-making processes in Germany, and what role did they play in the reunification process in and after 1990?
  • What transformations has the German media landscape undergone in the last 30 years?
  • How do these transformations affect the role of journalists and public discourse?
  • What skills/competencies do citizens need today in dealing with media?
 
The program will explore the Germans´ state of mind 30 years after reunification and investigate the many ways in which the city of Berlin has changed in its role as Germany´s capital.
Participants will also learn about and discuss continuing changes within the European Union and their impact on Germany. For the first time this year, the Berlin Capital Program will feature a three-workday (five overnights) extension (May 30-June 4, 2020) for a limited number of participants. This allows additional time to follow up on meetings fro the program week, conduct independent research, and further take advantage of the Fulbright experience. 
To be eligible for the program, an applicant must:
  • be a U.S. young professional journalist, currently employed by U.S. media in the U.S., with fewer than 5 years of work experience in the field or a Master’s student in the field of journalism or communications at a U.S. university or a graduating senior in the field of journalism or communications at a U.S. university;
  • demonstrate relevant background and professional interests;
  • be U.S. citizens – dual citizenship holders with German citizenship are not eligible;
  • permanently reside in the U.S. and have a valid U.S. passport.
 
The award benefits cover program costs, including round-trip transportation between the U.S. and Germany, hotel accommodation, some meals, local transportation and health insurance coverage during the seminar. For more information on program details, please click here.
 
Applications are welcome until January 8, 2020.
