During the three-month stay, the scholarship holders will get to know the German radio scene and local radio professionals in order to exchange ideas and be inspired by intercultural dialogue.
The scholarship provides access to curatorial supervision and technical support by the broadcasters in Halle. Radio Corax is a non-commercial local radio that can be received on the FM frequency 95.9 MHz in the Halle/Saale area and via live stream 24 hours a day.
