Application Deadline:  31 December 2016

Young women are encouraged to apply for the first scholarship offered by the Lénaïc Fund for Journalism. The scholarships are meant for young women to do internships in European English speaking media in Brussels.

Every year,Lénaïc Fund support recently graduated young female students from an EU country to come to Brussels and kick-start their career in the important profession of EU journalism. The Lénaïc Fund for Journalism aims to help those selected find their passion for this important profession just as Lénaïc Vaudin d’Imécourt did when she came to Brussels in 2011 and began her journalistic career.

The Lénaïc Fund for Journalism has been set up by the family and friends of Lénaïc – in her memory – after she tragically passed away from cancer in September 2015 at the young age of 28.

Three major media outlets: Politico, Emlex and EU trade insights, have already agreed to host a trainee. The first scholarship will complete an internship of five months from March 2017. Scholarships are €5,000.

Each trainee will have to write a report at the end of their internship describing their achievements. To apply, you must be a graduate from an EU country, have a good level of English and be under 30.


  • If you are a female graduate from an EU country under the age of 30, with the aim to work in EU journalism in Brussels, please send  a motivation letter and your CV in English at the following email address:


The first fellowships are expected to be granted in Spring 2017.

This selection of a small group of finalists will be made by an independent jury. The final choice of the young female journalist(s) to receive the bursary award will be made by the organising committee composed of Lénaïc’s parents, Aulde and Charles Vaudin d’Imécourt, John Clancy and David Thual.
