Fellowships 2021

In cooperation with SPIEGEL Ed and Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft, we offer two Fellowship-Programs for young educators in 2021. Awardees are given the possibility and support to develop new low-threshold & diversity-oriented workshops for students on digitalization, media and democracy.

Applications for both programs are closed.

New Fellowship-Program “Digital Europe”

Empowering young European educators to promote democratic values in digital spaces.

In cooperation with Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft, the Schwarzkopf Foundation Young Europe is awarding four fellowships across Europe for the first time. The program is aimed at young European educators between the ages of 18 and 27 who want to explore the topic of the (European) digital public sphere, and to professionalize their commitment to low-threshold and diversity-oriented educational work.

Over a period of six months (April to September 2021), the fellows are given the possibility and support to develop their own 45- to 90-minute workshops for students aged 13 and older, aiming to strengthen their (digital) democratic competence. The workshops are meant to create a space in which Fellows and students can together address topics such as democratic participation in the digital space, the representation of marginalized groups through digitization, or the role of social media and social movements in a digital Europe.

Fellowship-Program “Media and Democracy”

Empowering young German-speaking educators to strengthen political media education.

In cooperation with SPIEGEL Ed, the Schwarzkopf Foundation Young Europe annually awards four fellowships to young German-speaking educators (18 to 27 years old) who want to engage with topics related to media and democracy, and to professionalize their commitment to low-threshold and diversity-oriented educational work.

Over a period of six months (April to September 2021), the fellows are given the possibility and support to develop new 45- to 90-minute diversity-oriented workshops on political media education for students aged 13 and older, aiming to strengthen their media skills. The workshops are meant to provide a space in which Fellows and students can engage about how media works, examine one’s own media behavior, talk about what is good journalism and about the responsibility and importance of media for democratic culture.
