Featured Programs

  • Arthur F. Burns Fellowship

    Each year, outstanding media professionals from the United States, Canada and Germany are awarded an opportunity to report from and travel in each other's countries as part of The Arthur F. Burns Fellowship Program. The program offers young journalists, age 40 and under, the opportunity to share professional expertise with their colleagues across the Atlantic while working as "foreign correspondents" for their hometown news organizations.

  • Sub-Saharan Africa: Strengthening storytelling & audience engagement through data journalism & civic innovation

    Knight International Journalism Fellowships

    A team of ICFJ Knight Fellows is leading ICFJ’s Code for Africa (CfAfrica) data-journalism initiative that is catalyzing African media to deliver ongoing, high-quality news that engages audiences and sparks systemic change around “bread and butter” issues such as health and development. Led by two pan-African Fellows, an audience engagement Fellow, and three in-country Fellows, the initiative is targeting newsrooms in three regional hub countries: Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa. It will expand to include Tanzania in 2016, and will also tap into digital experimentation in newsrooms elsewhere in Africa.

  • Bringing Home the World: International Reporting Fellowship Program for Minority Journalists

    Applications for the 2016 fellowship are now open.

    Meet the 2015 Fellows here.

    The Bringing Home the World Fellowship helps U.S.-based minority journalists cover compelling yet under-reported international stories, increasing the diversity of voices in global news. The program helps level the playing field and redress the inequality minority journalists often face by giving them the opportunity to report from overseas and advance their careers.
