Apply Now for IRP's Reporting Fellowships 

The International Reporting Project (IRP) is now accepting applications on nuclear security, religion and health/development.

All candidates must complete an application form, including a detailed essay describing the types of stories they would pursue and a proposed budget.    


IRP will purchase the fellows' roundtrip air tickets to and from their homes and destinations, and we will offer a stipend to cover other expenses.


The nuclear security fellowship will focus on compelling issues of the security and safety of nuclear and radiological material. This fellowship is offered in collaboration with the Stanley Foundation.


This fellowship is open to U.S. journalists only. Applicants may propose traveling to any country, but some preference will be given to topics in regions that include the Middle East and North Africa, China and East Asia, Central Asia and the Caucasus, South Asia or sub-Saharan Africa.


The deadline for submitting applications for the nuclear security fellowship is May 11, 2015.

The religion fellowships may examine any stories that relate to religion, including its relationship with conflict, politics, economics and cultural issues. 

These fellowships are supported by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.

For the religion fellowships, we encourage applicants to propose stories and destinations not covered by recent IRP fellows on religion. 

Applications for the religion fellowships will be considered as they are submitted on a rolling basis.

The health/development fellowships will focus upon maternal and child health; poverty; infectious diseases; and other pressing health issues. These fellowships are supported by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

For the health/development fellowships, we have a strong preference for in-depth reporting from countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Applications for the health/development fellowships will be considered as they are submitted on a rolling basis.
