Westphalia Peace Prize Scholarship for young journalists 2020

Baiba Kļava receives the second Westphalia Peace Prize Scholarship for young journalists

Weekly magazine's IR journalist Baiba Kļava has won the second competition for the Westphalia Peace Prize Scholarship for young journalists which was organised by the Baltic Centre for Media Excellence in collaboration with the German public media ‘Deutsche Welle’ training institute, ‘DW Akademie’. Baiba Kļava's idea to analyse the COVID-19 influence on social and political aspects locally and in European Union level was elected as the best.

The source of financing for the scholarship is the Westphalia Peace Prize award to the Baltic countries which was accepted on behalf of Latvia by President Raimonds Vējonis in 2018.  The winner of the competition will be granted a scholarship of up to 3000 Euros for implementation of the project, as well as expert mentoring from ‘Deutsche Welle’. The competition took place in 2019 and will happen next time in 2021, with one Latvian journalist up to the age of 28 being granted a scholarship each year.
