The International Reporting Project at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAS) of the Johns Hopkins University is now accepting applications for their Fall 2012 IRP Fellowships. Nearly 200 journalists have been awarded IRP Fellowships since the project began in 1998, including David Francis, Kira Kay, and Jason Maloney.

The IRP’s primary focus encourages U.S. journalists to cover under-reported stories of global importance. For this year’s fellowship programs, journalists will cover topics on religion, global health, or other general international topics.

In November, the IRP announced their Spring 2012 IRP Fellows:

Juhie Bhatia, Women’s eNews, New York – Morocco
Andrew Green, freelance, Kampala – South Sudan
Cathy Shufro, freelance, Connecticut – Thailand
Carey Wagner, freelance, Los Angeles – Papua New Guinea
Christopher Werth, freelance, London – India

The nine-week fellowship will allow these journalists the opportunity to research and cover their stories in each of the destination countries listed, and will begin in mid-February 2012 and extend through mid-April 2012. Fall 2012 IRP Fellows will begin in early September 2012 and end in early November 2012.

IRP Fellows will split their time between Washington D.C. (where IRP offices is located) and their overseas reporting location. IRP Fellows will also receive a combined total travel stipend of $9,000 to cover expenses during the program. Any U.S. journalist with at least five years of professional experience (including freelancers) is eligible to apply for the Fall 2012 IRP Fellowships. Applicants will need to include an essay describing their proposed project as well as work samples and a letter of recommendation.

For more information about the Fall 2012 IRP Fellowships, visit the Fellowships FAQ page on the International Reporting Project’s website. The deadline for applications is April 2, 2012. Apply today!
