The Alfred Friendly Press Partners is calling on print, broadcast and online journalists from developing countries to apply for its annual fellowship that brings journalists from around the world to American newsrooms.

The Alfred Friendly Press Fellowship is aimed at providing fellows with experience in reporting, writing and editing that will enhance future professional performance; transferring knowledge gained during the program to colleagues at home; and fostering ties between journalists in the United States and other countries.

The next program will start in mid-March and end in early September 2019. The fellowship begins with a two-week orientation at the Missouri School of Journalism, followed by placement in leading U.S. newsrooms.

Fellows receive travel, health insurance and basic living expenses.

Interested applicants must have at least three years of professional experience, current full-time employment as a journalist, be between 25 and 35 years old and have a good level of spoken and written English.

Applications close on August 31, 2018.
