Nico Colchester journalism fellowship

What is Europe’s greatest challenge? How should it be met?

If you are a would-be journalist and would like to be considered for a three-month Nico Colchester fellowship this year at the Financial Times or The Economist, then send an 850-word article on the subject above, in English, together with a CV and covering letter.

The Nico Colchester Foundation—set up in memory of one of the finest journalists of his generation—aims to help continental writers understand Britain and British writers understand Europe. We are looking for candidates with bold ideas and a lively writing style, each capable of adapting to the excitement and pressures of a modern newsroom.

Two awards are on offer: one, for a British or Irish applicant, will consist of a fellowship in continental Europe at the Financial Times; the other, for an applicant from elsewhere in the European Union, will be in London at The Economist.

Both winners will receive a bursary of £6,000 to cover accommodation and travel.

The fellowship is only open to EU citizens. Confirmation of your citizenship is required in your application.

Entries should be sent, by the closing date of April 7th 2015, by email only to
