Two Weeks Left for Summer School Scholarship

Balkan-based journalists have two more weeks to apply for a full scholarship for BIRN Summer School of Investigative Reporting.

After July 28 only paying participants can apply.

This year’s Summer School will take place in the inspiring summertime setting of Montenegro from August 24-30.

As in previous years, BIRN’s trainers will include some of the best-known names from the investigative scene such as Paul Lewis, from The Guardian, Paul Radu OCCRP, Marcus Lindemann Computer-Assisted-Reporting expert and Meirion Jones, BBC investigative documentary director.

The school will give you a chance to pick up vital investigative skills and enjoy extensive networking amid picturesque scenery.

The focus of the Summer School is corruption in state institutions and how to investigate it. Additional sessions will look at investigative documentaries.
