Programs & Resources


Our free, all-expenses-paid programs help journalists understand the complex issues they cover. The programs are balanced and non-partisan, with on-the-record speakers including expert journalists, authorities and policymakers. Programs for international journalists are presented under the Journalist-to-Journalist banner, and offer enhanced opportunities in other countries to grapple with journalism practices and discuss issues. After each program, the audio and PowerPoint presentations, handouts, photos, videos or other resources are posted on our website. You’ll find them, along with applications for current programs, at the links below.

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. 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!
