Four U.S. journalists have been awarded International Reporting Project (IRP) Fellowships to report on topics of global religion.
The new group of IRP Fellows, their affiliations and the countries where they will report are:
Emily Brennan, The New York Times – Haiti
Kimberly Burge, freelance – South Africa
JP Dukes, freelance – Guatemala
Alexis Okeowo, freelance – Nigeria
IRP Fellows spend up to five weeks overseas reporting on projects they have proposed. Fellows’ prizewinning stories have appeared in scores of newspapers, magazines, on television, radio and online in various media organizations with which the IRP collaborates.
The journalists are the second group in two years to report on international religion topics with the support of a grant to the IRP from the Henry R. Luce Foundation. In 2011 four other journalists reported on topics of religion from Ethiopia, Ireland, Swaziland and Thailand as IRP Fellows.
Since 1998, nearly 200 journalists have been awarded IRP Fellowships and have reported from more than 100 different countries. The program is based in Washington DC.
