The international journalists who participate in the WPI Fellowship are some of the best journalists in their respective countries. They are smart, ambitious and hardworking. They approach journalism with a deep sense of dedication and responsibility and they are eager to learn — about journalism and life in the world’s most powerful democracy. They are journalists and photographers from newspapers, radio, television and online media.
Some WPI fellows work in countries where to tell the truth and be accurate, unbiased and fair requires taking a lot of risks. But they all share a common belief in the importance of the right of a people to be informed.
