About World Press Institute Fellowships

Each year, WPI selects 10 professional journalists from around the world to tour the United States and gain access to its premier media outlets, think tanks, advocacy organizations, policymakers and everyday people.

As part of the immersive tour, these journalists experience the news and events as they happen in real time. From presidential tweet storms and debates, to models for public and private education, to surviving in the digital world and more, WPI fellows get inside the headlines to engage with the news and newsmakers.

In the process, we all gain from the opportunity to learn from one another, collectively uphold the principles of a free press and promote journalistic best practices globally.

The WPI fellowship program has already welcomed over 600 journalists representing more than 100 different countries.

Why become a WPI Fellow?

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.
