The Bringing Home the World Fellowship sends U.S. minority journalists overseas to cover stories that resonate with their local communities. The aim of the program is to support diverse new voices and fresh perspectives on underreported global issues, and advance minority journalists’ careers.

The program is founded on the belief that if applicants change the storyteller then changes the story. Since the program began in 2011, fellows have produced hundreds of stories that have propelled their careers and enriched their audiences.

  • The fellowship has increased the diversity of voices reporting internationally, supporting 94 fellows in 49 countries.
  • One-third of participants have attributed their career advancement to the fellowship.
  • Nearly one-quarter of the reporters have won awards for their stories produced through the program.
  • Many fellows come from small- and medium-size news outlets, which often do not have the resources to send reporters overseas for stories that affect their communities.

Their hard-hitting reports have focused on such topics as human trafficking, women’s rights, displaced children, and environmental degradation. Fellows have uncovered abuses and corruption, as well as documented the extraordinary lives of ordinary people.

The program provides support for fellows to report in-country for up to two weeks, including costs for travel, lodging, and interpreters.  ICFJ brings the selected fellows to Washington, D.C., for a comprehensive orientation that includes story workshopping, safety training, multimedia storytelling, and advice on how to work with fixers/interpreters. They offer a mentor with knowledge of the country to be visited, who can connect fellows with sources on the ground.
