World Press Institute Fellowship 2019
Each year, World Press Institute Fellowship brings together 10 professional journalists from all over the world and immerse them in the governance, politics, business, media, journalistic ethics and culture of the United States.
Through a demanding, curated schedule in which they journey across the United States, they learn about the roles and responsibilities and evolving business models of the U.S. media, while engaging in the life and times surrounding them.
Gain access to, engage in and observe the role, responsibility and impact of a free press firsthand in one of the world’s largest, most diverse democracies.
Through an immersive program, you will learn how the U.S. founding principles of a free press and journalistic best practices help foster transparency and accountability of government institutions, businesses and organizations, including the most powerful ones.
In a guided tour across the country – including Chicago, New York City, Miami, Austin (Texas), San Francisco, and more – you will meet with and interview subject matter experts in media outlets, think tanks and advocacy organizations.
You will hear firsthand accounts of new business models being tested and implemented among national and local media outlets.
You will learn about U.S. history and current affairs, as well as challenges the U.S. media faces while experiencing and reporting on social, economic and political issues.
You also will interact with people from a variety of walks of life and get some free time along the way to explore on your own.
