World Press Institute Fellowship open [Worldwide]

Posted on Dec 7, 2023 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 begins late August / early September 2024. The fellows spend a few weeks in Minnesota and then travel to several U.S. cities, including New York and Washington, for briefings, interviews and visits. They 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. 

Ukrainian journalists are encouraged to apply. A spot in the 2024 fellowship is dedicated to a journalist from Ukraine. 

The deadline is Feb. 15, 2024.
