Hey folks. The International Reporting Project is now accepting applications for their fall fellowships on religion and other international topics. Details HERE and below.
IRP Fellowships in International Journalism
2011 IRP Fellow Megan Verlee reported on Meskel, a major Ethiopian holiday.
The IRP Fellowships allow U.S. journalists to do original, in-depth reporting projects overseas. Since the program was created in 1998, nearly 200 U.S. journalists have been awarded IRP Fellowships and have reported from more than 100 countries around the world. IRP Fellows’ prize-winning stories have appeared in all major media organizations in the United States.
The program encourages U.S. 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 (IRP) is filling some of the void.
