Deadline approaches for BIRN Summer School applicants

A limited number of spaces are still available for the 2011 BIRN Summer School of Investigative Reporting, with last-minute fee-paying applicants still able to submit their applications until August 9th.

The BIRN selection committee has already selected 20 excellent candidates from the Balkans, who have applied for and received scholarships for this unique course, while several more paying participants are expected to confirm their arrival in the Croatian resort of Opatija for the Summer School, which will run from August 21st to 27th.
Interest in the school remains high, as confirmed by the high number of visitors to the website on a daily basis.
