Sponsored by Atlas Network partner The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) and The Media Project (TMP) have collaborated for a second year to bring the European Journalism Institute (EJI) summer seminar. EJI provides a rigorous academic experience, fosters dialogues that cross borders, and creates a global network of responsible future leaders.

EJI brings together journalism students and working journalists from a variety of professional backgrounds in Prague, Czech Republic. Participants from North America, Europe and Central Asia will explore fundamental issues related to journalism ethics, religious reporting, conflict reporting and business reporting. The diverse nationalities, religions and ethnicities represented at EJI gives participants the chance to interact, learn and share their experiences in ways that will benefit their educational and professional development.

EJI will be held at Charles University, the oldest public university in the Czech Republic founded in 1347. Charles University and The Fund for American Studies have partnered together since 1993. The program's comprehensive package includes housing, at least two meals per day, a variety of notable professors, guest lectures, cultural and social events and opportunities for professional development and networking.

Participants who complete EJI will graduate into a global network of nearly 17,000 TFAS alumni. You can find TFAS alumni living and working in some of the world’s most exciting cities, including Washington D.C., New York, London, Paris, Beirut, Hong Kong, Beijing, Buenos Aires and Santiago, to name just a few. Graduates of our institutes can access this vast alumni network to open doors that lead to life-changing opportunities around the world.
