IRP Fellowships in International Reporting
Apply now for the IRP Fellowships
DEADLINE: April 1, 2009
In the fall of 2009 the International Reporting Project will offer up to eight IRP Fellowships to U.S. journalists to carry out a project reporting from any country in the world outside of the United States. The program will begin August 27, 2009, in Washington D.C. where IRP Fellows will spend two weeks at a program arranged at SAIS. IRP Fellows depart September 12 for a five-week period of individual international reporting. All IRP Fellows are required to return to Washington October 18 for a final period of presentations and discussions. Applications will be accepted from all U.S. journalists with at least three years' professional experience in any type of media. All applicants must complete an online IRP application form, which includes an essay of up to 1,000 words describing the proposed overseas project. A recommendation letter and work samples are also required.
As part of its 2009 program, the IRP will offer one â€œIRP/Stanley Foundation Fellowshipâ€ that will run concurrently with the other Fellowships. This award will be made to a U.S. journalist of any level of experience â€“ including senior journalists â€“ whose proposed international reporting project will focus on the challenge of securing loose nuclear material.
