IRP International Journalism Fellowships

The IRP fellowships allow international journalists to do original, in-depth reporting projects. Since the program was created in 1998, more than 200 journalists have been awarded IRP fellowships and have reported from more than 100 countries around the world. In 2013, IRP opened the fellowship program to international media professionals.

The program encourages journalists to cover neglected, under-reported stories of global importance. As much of the mainstream media have reduced their coverage of international issues, the International Reporting Project is filling some of the void.

We are now accepting applications for our health and development fellowships. In addition, we offer reporting trips throughout the year. Sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to receive announcements of new fellowships.
