Meet the New Media Fellows Traveling to Brazil

The International Reporting Project (IRP) has selected ten innovative journalists to report from Brazil on April 5–19.

The fellows will focus on the progress Brazil has made with several Millennium Development Goals, including reducing poverty and hunger and improving the health of its citizens. These are particularly timely topics, given Brazil’s role hosting the World Cup and the 2016 Olympics.

The ten new media journalists selected for the Brazil trip are:
