The institute works towards changing the industry in three interdependent ways. By collecting and distributing new knowledge we push forward new inspiration through our conferences, workshops and the award. We foster new role models through our international fellowship program and in this proces create global ambassadors for change across the profession. This section adresses the latter.
The program aims to give talented media professionals, with a potential to influence the future of journalism, access to an academic bank of knowledge at a top class university for the duration of an academic year.
The Structure of the Program
The Constructive Institute Fellowship Program is modelled after journalism fellowship programs at Stanford University in San Francisco and at Harvard University in Boston. The program aims to give talented media professionals, with a potential to influence the future of journalism, access to an academic bank of knowledge at a top class university for the duration of an academic year.
Not Just Another Fellowship
We take pride in other people describing us as
- 1/3 Stanford – because we are close to the industry and focused on innovation
- 1/3 Humboldt – because we are close to the academia and the latest knowledge
- 1/3 People High School – because we embody the spirit of the traditional Danish Folk High School focused on giving participants new perspective and connections with a focus on curiosity, philosophy, politics, music, joy and community.
Fellows take part in daily conversations with academics, politicians, media people and start up CEOs exploring ideas on; media, democracy, mindset changes and innovation in The CI Fellowship Lounge. The guitar, the coffee machine, the corner couches and the national songbook are essential for the intimate and innovative atmosphere..
