Since 1997, The German-Latin American Fellowship of IJP offers young journalists the unique opportunity to spend two months in a Spanish-, Portuguese- or German-speaking media. At least five young talented German and six Latin-American journalists get the chance to discover the diversity of their host countries. The Germans might not only choose from the new and old Global Players Brazil, Argentina or Mexico. The countries of Central America as well as Venezuela " just to name a few " have as many fascinating stories in the area of economics, politics and culture to offer. The programme invites as well journalists from all countries of South and Central America, who want to work for two months in a German mostly Berlin-based media.
