I also mentioned the role that non-profits are increasingly playing in our field. These include the Pulitzer Center and the International Reporting Project, just to name two well-known examples.
In a model that we are seeing more and more, these groups provide grants, scholarships or fellowships to support journalistic projects overseas, then help journalists distribute and promote their work when they return.
It’s worth considering if you’re hungry to work abroad on a compelling project and don’t want to wait forever for a j.o.b. to finance your dream.
