The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) selected a total of 70 journalists from the United States to report on everything from immigration to women’s health from 2011 to 2016 for the “Bringing Home the World Program: International Reporting Fellowship for Minority Journalists.” Thirteen journalists were selected for ICFJ’s “Social Justice Reporting for a Global America Program” in 2013 and 2014. Altogether over 174 stories have been published. This map depicts where the fellows traveled – and features their published work.

The Ford Foundation funds the fellowships, which have received additional support from Scripps Howard Foundation, United Airlines, as well as Samuel I. Newhouse and Brooks and Joan Fortune Family Foundations.
