What Journalists are Saying

Getting a Fellowship on any issue with the National Press Foundation is a fully educational, crash course on a topic you are interested in. For you to do all this research and hear from all these experts on your own would be near impossible. The NPF gives you an intense but fun and informative immersion into an issue you want to learn about. It's also great that other journalists are there asking different questions you may not have thought of. Excellent! I very much want to do it again and study another issue!
