International Reporting Project Fellows for 2007
Selected at SAIS
Three journalists have been awarded International
Reporting Project Fellowships at SAIS this
year. Aimed at encouraging coverage of international issues
by the U.S. news media, the 10-year-old
program has seen 148 fellows report from more than 80
different countries, focusing on important
stories that have been neglected or under-reported.
The IRP Fellows for fall 2007, their affiliations and
the countries on which they will focus are
Eliza Barclay, freelance journalist based in Mexico City
— Tanzania; Libby Casey, reporter, KUAC-FM
public radio, Fairbanks, Alaska — Iceland; and Krista
Kapralos, reporter, The Herald, Everett, Wash. —
"We're looking forward to some great work," John
Schidlovsky, IRP director, said. "The public
needs to know about the issues these journalists plan to
cover, which include global health, energy and
the environment and indigenous peoples."
The International Reporting Project is supported by
the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation,
Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund,
Carnegie Corp. of New York, Stanley
Foundation, Philip L. Graham Fund, New York Times Co.
