The Vaclav Havel Journalism Fellowship

The program seeks to advance and promote media freedom by inviting journalists from countries in RFE/RL’s broadcast region where freedom of press is stifled to undergo training, mentoring and work experience at the RFE/RL headquarters in Prague.

Free Media For All

We believe independent journalism and free media can act as a force multiplier for informed societies.

The Next Generation of Free Media

At the Prague Freedom Foundation, we are very proud of our amazing students and the incredible work they have accomplished so far.

Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty

RFE/RL provides a strong helping hand for our cause and has been an influential fixture in free media throughout the past four decades.

Free and Independent Journalism

A free and independent press is the bedrock of any democratic society. We support a myriad of programs to advance journalism.

Vaclav Havel Legacy

Vaclav Havel remains in the hearts of people worldwide as a leader who transformed a country without freedom into a free and democratic country.

Youth Outreach

We believe that the youth of the world are the gateway to our future. Therefore, we design and support programs that advance leadership and cultural understanding.



Based in Prague, Prague Freedom Foundation provides support for journalists from over twenty countries, brings together students of journalism for a summer course in Prague and designs programs for journalists from 14 countries. We believe in independent journalism and free media operating as a force multiplier for informed societies. Our mission is to promote independent journalism and free media globally.


  • Knowledge is power. Information is liberating.

  • I really do inhabit a system in which words are capable of shaking the entire structure of government, where words can prove mightier than ten military divisions.

  • The exchange to Ohio was a tremendous educational experience that has taught me things I will bring into my future career. It was inspiring to see what an impact can be made from student’s work, and I hope to bring that to the rest of my time at AAU.

  • The best weapon of a dictatorship is secrecy, but the best weapon of a democracy should be the weapon of openness.

  • If you give people true and accurate information, the nation (and the world) will make informed decisions and society will prosper from these decisions. Free press is the cornerstone of democracy. This is why it should be no surprise that when Czech citizens wanted to resist the Communist regime’s rights abuses, they turned to dissident media to make a difference.
