FASPE (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics) is now accepting applications for its 2019 Journalism program.
FASPE Journalism is a fully-funded, two-week fellowship program in professional ethics and ethical leadership that begins by examining the actions and choices of German and international journalists in covering and enabling Nazi policies. It then draws on this historical example to help Journalism Fellows both grasp their role as influencers in their field and in their communities as well as identify and confront the ethical issues currently facing journalists and media outlets at large. The program takes place in Germany and Poland at the sites of Nazi actions, allowing Fellows to benefit from the power of the place and immersive, contextual learning.
Program Dates: Saturday, May 25 - Friday, June 7, 2019.
Fully-funded: All program costs are covered, including travel, lodging, and food.
Interdisciplinary: FASPE Journalism Fellows travel with Fellows in the FASPE Business and Law programs.
Itinerary: Fellows will travel to Berlin, Krakow, and Oswiecim (the location of the former Nazi concentration camp of Auschwitz).
Eligibility: Applicants must be currently enrolled in a graduate program with the intention of pursuing a career in journalism OR be currently working as a journalist and have completed a graduate degree between May 2017 and January 2019 or an undergraduate degree between May 2014 and May 2018.
FASPE programs are non-denominational. Candidates of all nationalities, religions, and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
