FASPE Application Deadline Extension

Application Deadline:            January 27, 2021

FASPE Journalism begins by analyzing the decisions, actions and impact of German and international journalists and the German and international press, generally, in enabling Nazi policies. The program underscores the reality that moral codes governing journalists, and journalism, can break down or be distorted with devastating consequences. FASPE then draws on this historical example to help Journalism Fellows both to grasp their role and responsibility as individuals with influence in their broad communities and to confront the ethical issues that currently face journalists. By studying professional ethics at the sites of Nazi actions, our Fellows experience the importance of professional ethics in an immersive, powerful and personal way.

The Fellowship is fully funded; and we will be awarding the 2021 FASPE Journalism Fellowship to between 4 and 8 applicants.

FASPE Journalism applicants must be interested in journalism as a career and fit into one of the following two categories: 1) be enrolled in a graduate program of any kind and planning to work as a journalist; 2) be working as a journalist with an undergraduate degree in any field received between May 2015 and May 2020 or a graduate degree in any field received between May 2018 and January 2020.

FASPE seeks Fellows who are about to embark on their career as professionals, are interested in engaging in discussions with their co-Fellows and faculty, and who have the intellectual and emotional maturity to unpack difficult and controversial issues responsibly and respectfully in small group settings.

FASPE selects its Fellows on the basis of their academic background, personal and professional experiences, capacity for leadership and ability to contribute to the program and the alumni community. All applications are welcome and reviewed.
