Applications for Falling Walls Fellowships for Journalists Opens


The Falling Walls (FW) fellowship is now receiving applications from professional journalists and experienced bloggers who write about science.

In an effort to keep the public informed on life-changing scientific breakthroughs, FW created the Falling Walls Fellowship for journalists and bloggers with at least three years of experience, and who hope to advance their knowledge in the area of sciences.

The opportunity is open to freelance and full-time journalists or bloggers. Professionals in fields such as research, teaching, public relations and advertising are not eligible.

The applicants must have a minimum of three years professional journalism/blogging experience in which they have written about the sciences.

The Fellows will get the opportunity to attend the Falling Walls Lab, Falling Walls Venture, the Falling Walls Conference as well as an additional programme in Berlin around November 8 and 9, 2017.

The fellowship includes travel expenses (economy class), accommodation for 3 nights (organised by Falling Walls Foundation), conference fees and meals (breakfast at hotel and catering during the Falling Walls events).

Application closes on May, 25, 2017.
