Donate today to support free press

World Press Institute strives to enable excellence in international reporting by promoting the benefits of a free press and upholding journalistic best practices.

Thanks to our supporters, we offer one of the most comprehensive U.S. fellowship programs for professional journalists from around the world. Since 1961, we have welcomed around 600 journalists from nearly 100 countries.

Your generous donation will help us to continue this important work.

WPI relies on the generosity of people and organizations. We are always seeking volunteers who are:

“In my years of affiliation with the World Press Institute, I have seen no other institution which has done the job they have in introducing talented young foreign journalists to the complexities of the American way of life.

Year after year, journalists from all parts of the world have had an unequaled opportunity to see the American system at work, often to report on major U.S. developments, crises in foreign policy, presidential elections, even national tragedies and disaster.

Each year WPI fellows have traveled the length and breadth of the United States…They have returned to their own countries filled with pragmatic expertise and a background for understanding both the U.S., and their own countries in a way they never were able to do before.”
