World Press Institute Fellowship open [Worldwide]

Posted on Dec 26, 2018 in Multimedia Journalism

Journalists who live outside the United States can apply for a fellowship.

The World Press Institute (WPI) is offering fellowships for experienced journalists hoping to improve their understanding of American journalism.

The program aims to expose fellows to working conditions in the U.S. media. They are required to report on a variety of social issues to see how U.S. institutions respond to different social concerns.

The fellowship will begin mid-August 2019 and end mid-October. The fellows will spend three weeks in Minnesota and then travel to several U.S. cities, including New York and Washington, for briefings, interviews and visits. They will return to Minnesota for the final week of the program.

Applicants must have demonstrated leadership potential, five years of full-time news experience and fluency in English. Freelancers are eligible. Fluency in English is required.

The deadline is Feb. 15, 2019.
