2015 World Press Institute Fellowship

2015 World Press Institute Fellowship Program: The WPI fellowship is offered to 10 journalists from countries around the world. It provides immersion into the governance, politics, business, media, journalistic ethics and culture of the United States for experienced international journalists, through a demanding schedule of study, travel and interviews throughout the country.


Journalism — in particular, the role and responsibilities of a free press in a democracy— is the primary focus of the WPI fellowship program. First-hand knowledge of the complexity and diversity of life in the U.S. is an equally important goal. Access is the key. Over the term of the fellowship, WPI fellows gain access to a broad range of individuals and institutions ranging from the world renowned to the ordinary.

Eligibility
  • The program is open to journalists and photojournalists from newspapers, news magazines, wire services, radio, television and online news organizations. Every candidate must possess:
  • At least five (5) years full-time employment in print, broadcast, or online journalism;
  • Must be currently employed as a non U.S. journalist working outside of the United States;
  • Fluency in both written and spoken English;
  • Potential for leadership.

The Fellowship
WPI pays all program costs, including transportation to the U.S. and back, all transportation within the U.S. related to the WPI program, and all lodging costs. In addition, a modest daily per diem for food is provided. Personal expenses, such as cameras, film, postage and clothing, are the responsibility of the fellows.

  • Applicant information;
