Rudolf Mosse Scholarship

The long tradition of German-Jewish journalists, editors and publishers came to a standstill with the Shoa. ELES wants to empower and support its scholarship holders to resume this tradition and to adapt it to the challenges of the modern world. The Rudolf Mosse Scholarship aims to promote critical and responsible Jewish voices in journalism. The programme bears the name of the influential Berlin publisher and editor of such influential publications as the Berliner Tageblatt, Rudolf Mosse (1843-1920).

Since the winter semester of 2015/16, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftun(KAS) has been welcoming journalistically talented scholarship holders from all disciplines of the Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich Studienwerk into its programme for young talented journalists (JONA). In 1979, KAS began offering its scholarship holders special support to meet the needs of young journalists. In the fall of 2002, KAS created its journalism programme to promote modern journalistic education, with JONA as the most important component. Today, more than 140 fellows from various cities in Germany are on their way to becoming journalists with the help of JONA. Interested scholarship holders should contact the ELES office.

More information about the cooperaton can be found on the the pages of KAS, and the Jüdische Allgemeine website.

Täglich zur Mittagszeit unterhalten / Wir uns von mancherlei Sachen: / Wie kann man Errungenes weitergestalten, / Gutes noch besser machen? // Immer weiter zu ziehen die Grenzen / Des Verlangens und Strebens / Ist der Sinn aller Konferenzen / Und der Sinn des Lebens.
