Founded in 1918, the Foreign Press Association (“FPA-USA”), is the pre-eminent non-governmental organization representing international journalists in the United States.
With members from most regions around the world, the Foreign Press Association offers orientation and networking opportunities; news-making and educational events that bring members together with political, business, and other leaders; and a range of valuable member benefits and services.
The Foreign Press Association of the United States partners with corporations, non-profits, national as well as international media organizations, and communications companies on events that meet the needs of its members.
The Foreign Press Foundation, the affiliate arm of the Foreign Press Association, has been the conduit for both global and national corporations to support the education and development of professional journalists for the realities of today’s media industry.
The Foreign Press Foundation enhances the Foreign Press Association’s mission since its establishment in 1918. Over the past 24 years, thanks to the generosity of supporting companies, eighty-eight scholarships have been awarded to foreign professional journalists committed to pursuing their master’s level studies in the United States.
By providing scholarships to these international professional journalists, the Foreign Press Foundation positions education as the cornerstone of professional journalism.
