The Nico Colchester Journalism fellowship

The fellowship was established in memory of Nico Colchester, who died in 1996, after an outstanding career at the Financial Times, The Economist and The Economist Intelligence Unit.

Fellowship 2014: Who should be the next President of the European Commission and what should they do?

If you are a European journalist or 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 in an 850-word article on the subject above, in English, together with a CV and covering letter.

The Nico Colchester Foundation’s aim is to help continental writers understand Britain and British writers understand continental Europe.

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

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

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

Entries should be sent, by the closing date of April 4th 2014, by e-mail only to
