Make 2016 a Fellowship Year
Each year ICFJ runs some 70 programs that help journalists and media organizations use technology to produce outstanding coverage of important issues. This year, we have a wide variety of offerings, from covering the fight against malaria in Africa to reporting on the latest tech innovations in Japan. These fellowships present a wonderful opportunity for U.S. journalists to work as foreign correspondents – and to develop local stories with international angles.
Here is the exciting lineup:
