Foreign Press Association Supports Next Generation of International Journalists

FPA Scholarship Fund Awards Will Be Presented on May 21st at University Club

 

 

Founded in 1918, with members from more than 50 countries, the FPA offers orientation and networking opportunities; news making and educational events that bring members together with political, business, and other leaders; and a range of services that support international reporters in the U.S.

The FPA Scholarship Fund has been contributing to the development of the next generation of international reporters for two decades.Thanks to the generosity of members and the leadership of corporate supporters including Daimler, UPS and PR Newswire, FPA Scholarships are awarded each year to international graduate journalism students studying in the U.S.  To-date the scholarship fund has helped more than 75 journalism students complete their studies, launch and build on their journalism careers.

The event will be attended by past and present scholarship winners, leaders from graduate schools of journalism, FPA members, corporate supporters, and representatives from the communications, business and government communities.  Individual tickets are available from $195, including a tax-deductible contribution.  Members of the media interested in attending are invited to contact the FPA.
