Graduate and undergraduate students studying at American colleges and universities who aspire to become foreign correspondents are invited to apply for Overseas Press Club Foundation scholarship/fellowship awards. American students studying abroad are also eligible to apply.
In a typical year, the Foundation would award 17 scholarships/fellowships. The Foundation pays travel and living expenses for the fellowship winners to spend time in the foreign bureaus of such leading news organization as the Associated Press, Reuters, Bloomberg, GroundTruth Project, Wall Street Journal and Forbes and at foreign English-language media companies such as the South China Morning Post. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the number of fellowships available at news organizations may be fewer this year or the fellowship may be virtual. Students can still win a $2,000-$3,000 grant to pursue academic goals or funding their own overseas assignments.
All applications with resume, cover letter and work samples should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
