The Foreign Press Center Japan (FPCJ), a nonprofit organization that supports foreign journalists in their coverage of Japan, is accepting candidates for its 2019 fellowship program.
Fellows will spend a week between April 2019 and March 2020 in Japan, researching and reporting on topics related to Japanese politics, economics, foreign policy and society.
Candidates must be affiliated with a media organization in the United States, Canada or the United Kingdom and are expected to produce a story for their employer based on the reporting trip.
