Berlin Science Week Fellowship

ORG-Falling Walls Foundation
This year the Falling Walls Foundation is offering two types of Fellowships for science journalists: The Falling Walls Science Fellowship for journalists and the Berlin Science Week Fellowship. Please read the requirements for both opportunities carefully and specify in your motivation letter which fellowship you are applying for. Please note: The Berlin Science Week Fellowship does not include travel costs to and from Berlin.

Programme: The Berlin Science Week Fellows are invited to attend events of the fourth Berlin Science Week as well as the programme of the Falling Walls Conference (Falling Walls Lab, Venture, Engage, Welcome Reception on 8 November and Conference on 9 November). The Fellowship Programme is a great possibility to connect with Berlin-based and international scientific institutions and to network with colleagues from all over the world. The programme also includes a guided tour to selected scientific institutions in Berlin and participation in the Berlin Science Award ceremony on 7 November, hosted by the Governing Mayor of Berlin. 

The fellowship includes: hotel accommodation for 4 nights (including breakfast), free tickets to the Falling Walls events on 8/9 November, free meals during the events and participation at the Berlin Science Week. Please note: The fellowship does not cover travel expenses to and from Berlin.
Eligibility: Science journalists with a minimum of three years professional journalism/blogging experience in which they have written about the science topics.
