The World Press Institute (WPI) is offering four-month fellowships for experienced journalists outside the United States hoping to improve their understanding of American journalism.
The program aims to expose fellows to working conditions in the U.S. media. They are required to report on a variety of social issues to see how U.S. institutions respond to different social concerns. WPI hopes to promote accurate reporting about the United States by international journalists.
Applicants must have demonstrated leadership potential, five years of full-time news experience and fluency in English. Freelancers are eligible. Applications for the 2012 program are due January 31, 2012.
The WPI is a private, non-profit organization supported by a variety of foundations, media institutions and multi-national corporations.
