The International Reporting Project (IRP) provides opportunities for journalists to report internationally on critical issues that are under covered in the news media.

The program was created in 1998, making it a pioneer in the nonprofit journalism movement that seeks to fill the gap left by much of the mainstream media's reduction of international news. The IRP has provided opportunities to more than 600 journalists to report from more than 110 countries and produce award-winning stories. In 2016, IRP moved its headquarters to New America, a nonpartisan research institution with offices in Washington, D.C., New York, and California.
