World Press Institute - Fellowship Program 2012

Posted by Jamal Fida Tuesday, December 20, 2011 0 comments
Closing Date: January 31,2012.

WPI fellows are required to prepare for and participate in all briefings and all other scheduled WPI events. They must agree to stay for the entire program and to return to their home countries at the program's conclusion.
WPI requires that fellows write for the WPI Web site, including the blog, WPI Reports, and submit up to three stories for WPI's online partners during their fellowship. They are also encouraged to file for their readers, listeners or viewers back home.
Periodic reviews and evaluations are required, and WPI fellows participate in several roundtable discussions about their insights into the U.S. or international journalism issues.
Fellows must have a tolerance for others of different cultures. The program involves a lot of travel, is nonstop, and fellows live out of suitcases much of the time as venues change frequently.
Violations of these terms could result in termination from the program
Letters of Recommendation
During the online application process, you will need to provide the names and email addresses of three (3) references. WPI will contact them with information on how they can submit online letters of recommendation.
  • Recommendations should be written by individuals familiar with your work who can comment on your journalistic abilities and potential for growth and leadership. These letters should be in English and address your experience, qualifications, and potential.

  • One of the three recommendation should be from your immediate supervisor.
Work Samples
Please make sure all samples contain the date on which they were published. Most, if not all, of your samples should have been published or aired within the last two years.
If your samples are not in English, please include an English summary of their contents
Work samples can be uploaded with the online application. Files with the following extensions are accepted: .pdf, .txt, .rtf, .doc. For photos or other artwork, .jpg/.jpeg, .gif, or .pdf files are accepted. 
DVDs, audio/video files, or samples that exist only on paper and that cannot be converted to digital form can be sent to the address below. Please note that samples cannot be returned.
