The application period for DW's traineeship 2024-2025 runs from November 9 - December 14, 2022. We only accept applications via DW's online application portal. 

Applicants come from all over the world, speak several languages and have diverse qualifications. Deutsche Welle's rigorous annual application process has several rounds. In the final round, a committee selects twelve aspiring journalists who are especially well-suited for the program. The committee members include the DW Director General, DW's Program Director, DW's Editor-in-Chief, and prominent DW journalists.   

We're not looking for perfect, well-established journalists but for young, open-minded candidates with initial journalistic experience or special expertise who want to help shape the future of Deutsche Welle.
