World Press Institute Fellowship for Journalists

How does the American press look to journalists from other countries?

Fellows with the World Press Institute have been traveling around the United States since August. Their visit has coincided with major hurricanes, mounting tensions with North Korea and the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.


This is WPI fellowship calling for applications. WPI (World Press Institute) fellowship is a private, nonprofit organization supported by a wide range of foundations, local and national media, multinational U.S. corporations, and individuals from all over the world. The applications are open now!
