About the Organization:

World Press Institute (WPI) was established in 1961 to strengthen and promote the founding principles and best practices of journalism in the United States and around the world that lead to transparency and accountability of the government and private sectors. Each year, they bring 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.

World Press Institute Fellowships 2023

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, they 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.
