The BIRN Summer School for investigative journalism will be held from 19 to 25 of August this year in Romania.
The school, in its ninth year, will again gather top journalists and editors from the Balkans and across the world to train reporters.
This year, the school will have a strong focus on new trends and online tools for investigative journalists.
The lead trainer will be Blake Morrison, investigative projects editor for Reuters New York.
Thanks to support from donors, BIRN is providing 20 full scholarships for Balkan participants – exceptional candidates from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania and Serbia with at least three years of experience in journalism.
Applications for scholarships must be received by July 15, 2018.
Standard applications (for non-scholarship applicants) must be received by August 1, 2018.
