International Reporting Project
The International Reporting Project (IRP) provides opportunities to U.S. journalists to go overseas to do international reporting on critical issues that are under covered in the U.S. news media. The program was created in 1998, making it a pioneer in the “non-profit journalism” movement that seeks to fill the gap left by much of the mainstream media’s reduction of international news. The IRP has provided opportunities to more than 600 journalists to travel to more than 100 countries to produce prize-winning stories. The program is funded entirely by private, non-partisan foundations and individuals who believe in the importance of in-depth international coverage in the U.S. media.
