International Reporting Project (IRP)

What they do:

- Group reporting trips (up to 10-12 people). IRP plans all logistics of the trip, including flights, hotels, and interviews.

- Independent reporting trips.

General advice for winning a grant

-  IRP only offers independent grants that cover a certain theme. Currently, it’s women and LGBT issues.

- If at first you don’t succeed, apply again! IRP is a small organization and they tend to remember strong proposals from previous applicants. This is another reason why, if your proposal isn’t accepted the first time, you should react graciously.

You're a good fit if...

- Groups trips are best if you haven’t done any foreign reporting before, but are looking to get a feel for it.

- Experienced journalists are encouraged to apply for independent reporting trips.
