Graduate and undergraduate students studying in American universities and Americans studying abroad can apply for one of 16 scholarships or fellowships.

The Overseas Press Club Foundation is offering US$2,000 scholarships and funding for overseas experience.

The foundation pays travel and living expenses for interns in foreign bureaus at leading news organizations, including the Associated Press, Reuters, The Wall Street Journal and Forbes, and at foreign English-language media companies like the South China Morning Post and Khmer Times.  

Winners receive membership with the Overseas Press Club and will attend a reception in New York.

Applicants must submit a cover letter, a resume and a 500-word essay about a region or international issue on which the applicant would like to focus.

The deadline is Dec. 1.
