Promoting Academic Exchange with the Baltic States in Journalism/Media Sciences and Related Disciplines

With regard to the joint announcements of the Federal Foreign Minister and his counterparts from the three Baltic states in March 2015 to provide increased support for the development of independent, objective and professional media in the Baltic region, the DAAD is inviting students from the Baltic states and German lecturers in journalism/media sciences and related disciplines to apply for fellowships and project funding from the DAAD.

 This call for proposals is aimed at:

  • Students and graduates from the Baltic states in journalism/media sciences and related disciplines with excellent German, English or Russian language skills (programmes: University Summer Courses, Study Scholarships, Study Visits)
  • Lecturers in journalism/media sciences from Germany who hold a doctorate and would like to teach in the Baltic states (programme: Short-term Lectureships).
