    Print and broadcast journalists covering politics, the economy, legal and constitutional topics can apply for this fellowship in Heidelberg, Germany. 

    To apply, journalists must submit a short outline of their proposed research plan. 

    Journalists receive a research grant of EUR3,000 (US$2,988) per month for the duration of the fellowship.
