Featured Programs

  • U.S.-Pakistan Professional Partnership in Journalism

    "This program is possibly the most important we have in Pakistan, really interesting to see America through their eyes, makes me proud to be an American and hopeful about Pakistan." -- Dr. Stephen P. Cohen; Sr. Fellow, Foreign Policy Studies Program, The Brookings Institution

    A multi-year program will bring 230 Pakistani media professionals to the United States and send 70 U.S. journalists to Pakistan.

  • India: Use Mobile Technology to Bring News to Isolated Tribal Communities

    Knight International Journalism Fellow Shubhranshu Choudhary’s mobile news service CGnet Swara (Voice of Chhattisgarh) transformed how people in remote areas of India receive and share news.

    The system, developed with the help of Microsoft Research India, allows people to use mobile phones to send and listen to audio reports in their local language. This service circumvents India’s ban on private radio news and reaches people who never before had access to local news.

  • U.S.-Austrian Journalism Exchange Fellowships

    2013 USAJEF Fellows (from left) Jeannine Hierländer, Simone Artner and Nathaniel Minor visit the Foreign Press Center in Washington, D.C.

    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.
