The European Union – Qantas Journalist Award is open to journalists proposing a fifteen-day program to follow up a special interest or topic.

The EU Visitors Program is for aspiring leaders from countries outside Europe to gain a first-hand appreciation of the EU’s goals, policies and people.

It provides for a five to eight day schedule of meetings with EU officials at the EU institutions in Brussels, Strasbourg and Luxembourg.

Eligible participants are usually mid-career government officials, journalists, trade unionists, educators, officials of non-profit, non-governmental organisations, and other professionals with career-related interests in the European Union.

These are billed as part of the Centre’s mission to promote research, education and dialogue between Europe and Australia, specifically aimed at supporting local and international scholars doing research at the Canberra-based university.

Its theme for 2010 is “Europe and the Law”
