World Press Institute Media Fellowship


The US Studies Centre, in association with the World Press Institute, offers a media fellowship to the United States to one Australian mid-career journalist each year.

The two-month fellowship provides an extraordinary professional opportunity for an Australian journalist to be immersed in the governance, politics, business, media, journalistic ethics and culture of the United States.

The winner of the United States Studies Centre World Press Institute Media Fellowship is among a group of ten World Press Institute Fellows from around the world selected to travel. Based at the World Press Institute in Minneapolis-St Paul, Minnesota, the fellows travel across the United States between August and October visiting major US cities such as Washington DC and New York.

Previous groups have visited the offices of The Washington Post, Politico, CNN, Univision, The New York Times and many others, meeting with editors, staff and high-profile commentators.

Since 2014, this fellowship has been made possible with the generous support of the Skrzynski Family's Sky Foundation.
