Journalists who live outside the United States can apply for a fellowship.
The World Press Institute (WPI) is offering four-month fellowships for experienced journalists 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.
The 2013 fellowship will begin August 9. Participants will spend three weeks in Minnesota, travel across the United States for five weeks, then return to Minnesota for the last week of the program, which concludes October 11.
Applicants must have demonstrated leadership potential, five years of full-time news experience and fluency in English. Freelancers are eligible.
Applications may be submitted between December 1 and January 31.
