    Each year three to six outstanding media professionals from the United States and Austria are awarded an opportunity to report from and travel in each other's countries as part of the U.S.-Austrian Journalism Exchange Fellowships. The program offers young print and broadcast journalists from each country the opportunity to share professional expertise with their colleagues across the Atlantic while working as "foreign correspondents" for their hometown news organizations. The program aims to foster greater understanding and knowledge of both countries among future media leaders and their audiences.

  • Each year, the International Center for Journalists Awards Dinner honors the achievements of colleagues whose outstanding news reports and media innovations have made a huge impact and improved societies around the world.
