Fully Funded World Press Institute Fellowship in USA

World Press Institute Fellowship in USA is offered to 10 journalists from countries around the world. It provides immersion into the governance, politics, business, media, journalistic ethics and culture of the United States for experienced international journalists, through a demanding schedule of study, travel and interviews throughout the country. The fellows will spend three weeks in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, and then travel to several U.S. cities, including New York and Washington, D.C., for briefings, interviews and visits. They will return to Minnesota for the final week of the program.

Benefits

WPI pays all program costs, including transportation to the U.S. and back, all transportation within the U.S. related to the WPI program, and all lodging costs. In addition, a modest daily per diem for food is provided. Personal expenses, such as cameras, film, postage and clothing, are the responsibility of the fellows.

Eligibility

  • At least five (5) years full-time employment in print, broadcast, or online journalism.
  • Journalists can work for news or editorial departments of newspapers, wire services, radio, television, websites, online publications or magazines of general public interest.
  • Photojournalists, editorial cartoonists, columnists and broadcast producers are also eligible.
  • Those who supervise journalists are eligible providing that they also have at least five years as a working journalist.
