    The McCloy Fellowships provide American print, broadcast, and digital media journalists with the opportunity to travel overseas to conduct on site research,
    interviews and pursue stories of their own design. Fellows travel to Germany and/or the other EU27 countries, provided that the project bears relevance for contemporary Germany within the wider EU context. The fellowship provides a stipend in the amount of $200 per day for up to 21 days; transatlantic airfare and pre-approved intercity travel are also covered.

    Past fellows have explored issues such as immigration and integration in Germany, environmental protection policies, green technology, and comparative perspectives on a wide range of public policy issues, from health care to education.

    Fellows are chosen through a competitive process by a jury of distinguished journalists, including William M. Drozdiak, President of the American Council on Germany and former Chief European Correspondent for The Washington Post; Josh Friedman, Director of Maria Moors Cabot Prizes at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting; Michael Parks, Professor at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and also a winner of the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting; and ACG Board Member Lee Cullum, formerly a regular commentator on the “NewsHour with Jim Lehrer” and currently host of “CEO,” a series of television interviews with business leaders.

    Journalists attached to media organizations are encouraged to apply. Freelance journalists are asked to demonstrate where resulting articles and/or related pieces could be placed. Applicants must hold U.S. citizenship. At least one fellowship in 2013 will be awarded to a student enrolled in a graduate program in journalism at the time of application. Travel must take place within one
    calendar year of receipt of the award.

    To apply, please submit: a cover letter outlining your personal and professional objectives for the fellowship; a project proposal of at least two pages detailing the background and scope of your project, the general sources and institutions with whom you would like to consult while abroad, and the relevance of the project for transatlantic relations; a current resume; and two letters of recommendation. Applications may be sent via e-mail to or via mail to:
