After the huge success of our 2017 First Hundred Days Reporting Program, ICFJ is excited to revive the program for the 2020 election and adapt it to fit the needs of our current state of affairs by transforming it into a digital fellowship.
The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) with support from U.S. Embassy posts around the globe will host nine international journalists to train them on campaign elections and American politics. Through the program, reporters learn from experts in the lead-up to the up to the U.S. presidential election and receive mentorship from American counterparts.
Participants will reflect on their experience and engage in a discussion about how they can apply their new skills and knowledge to their coverage of U.S. and global politics in their home countries.
During the first hundred days following the January 2021 inauguration, participants will connect as virtual fellows with U.S. newsrooms. During these three months, they enrich their understanding of issues that Americans care about and work with their hosts and peers to produce stories.
To support their reporting, ICFJ will issue reporting grants so the fellows will have dedicated resources to develop their ideas for coverage of U.S. current affairs, especially issues of relevance to the American working class.
