World Affairs Journalism Fellowships

The World Affairs Journalism Fellowships are intended for experienced journalists and editors from America's community-based media outlets. The goal is to give them an opportunity to establish the connections between local-regional issues and what is happening abroad.

Fellows will spend about two weeks reporting overseas in an effort to "internationalize" America's local media. The fellowships are founded on the belief that local news is not limited to one's immediate community and that enterprising reporters and editors can find good international stories in their own backyards.
