  • Graduate and undergraduate students, studying at American colleges and universities or Americans studying abroad, who aspire to become foreign correspondents, are invited to apply for one of the scholarships or fellowships to be awarded by the Overseas Press Club Foundation.

    From among those chosen for OPC Foundation recognition, the Foundation selects up to 11 fellows and pays travel and living expenses while they gain valuable career experience in foreign bureaus at such leading news organization as the Associated Press, Reuters, GlobalPost, Wall Street Journal and Forbes and at foreign English-language media companies like the South China Morning Post and Khmer Times. Students win either a $2,000 grant or funding for their overseas experience. In many cases, winning a prestigious OPC Foundation award has helped launch careers. Winners are also invited to join the Overseas Press Club family. They are encouraged to network and keep the organization informed of their career moves.

    Applicants must submit a cover letter, resume and a writing sample of approximately 500 words which concentrates on an area of the world or an international issue that is in keeping with the applicant's interest and experience.

    Winners will be contacted in December so arrangements can be made for them to attend the Foundation Scholarship Luncheon in February in New York City. Recipients are required to attend. The Foundation will cover the cost of travel and hotel. The three-day event also includes a welcome reception hosted by Reuters and a day of situational awareness/risk management training for journalists.
