Welcome, U.S. Journalists in Berlin

C/O Berlin in Amerika Haus is among the places to be visited by participants in this year’s Berlin Capital Program

We welcome 14 young journalists and journalism students for the Berlin Capital Program, our intensive weeklong seminar that offers a snapshot of the German media landscape to budding American journalists via first-hand encounters and on-the-ground experiences.

Among the many highlights during the week are a briefing at the German Bundestag on the recent German and other European elections this year and their impact on transatlantic relations; an in-depth visit to Deutsche Welle, Germany’s international news broadcaster; a meeting and discussion in Leipzig with the founder of Chance-for-Science, a social network connecting refugee scholars, researchers and students with their local counterparts in Germany; a tour and meeting with the co-founder of Silicon Allee, “the embassy to Berlin’s startup scene;” and a media networking reception to include current Fulbright Young Professional Journalist grantees and prominent Fulbright alums in the Berlin media industry.
