The Adenauer Fellowship is a scholarship offered by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS), Media Programme Asia. KAS is one of the German political foundations by the Christian Democratic Union. In its effort to promote Democracy and the Rule of Law, KAS is running three media programmes worldwide, in Sub-Saharan Africa, South East Europe, and Asia.

We at the KAS Media Programme Asia believe that journalism is a craft. To support you with the best journalism education, we focus on practical training, supervised and guided by award winning industry experts. We believe you need to have a great network to become accomplished journalists. Last but not least we believe that access to outstanding journalist education should not depend on your financial background. These criteria have guided us in setting up the Adenauer Fellowship for Media and Communications in Asia.

Each one of our partners is unique. Each one has a different focus. Each one is deeply committed to teaching, challenging and supporting the Adenauer Fellows in the best possible way.

You can apply for the Adenauer Fellowship for Media and Communications (universities and j-schools) or a two-year-practical training at the following partner institutions:
