alfred friendly press partners

Early-career professional journalists from developing countries with proficiency in English can apply for a six-month fellowship. Alfred Friendly Press Partners provides fellows with basic and advanced hands-on instruction at the Missouri School of Journalism and places them in leading U.S. newsrooms. The successful candidate will be 25-35 years old and have at least three years of experience as a journalist at a print, online or broadcast media outlet. Participants work as staff reporters in their host newsrooms are required to develop training plans that they implement when they return to their home newsrooms. ​The ​all-inclusive ​fellowship starts in mid-March and ends in early September.

The Alfred Friendly Press Fellowships are six month professional fellowships offered once a year to professional journalists from developing countries and emerging markets. Friendly Fellows work full time at U.S. host news organizations while developing their journalism skills.

Benefits to Fellows

Working and living in another country is a challenge that fellows not only overcome but embrace. The benefits are personal as well as professional.

Friendly Fellows learn to:

  • Improve skills in gathering information, interviewing and writing.
  • Add social perspective to business and political reporting.
  • Write more balanced news articles, more polished feature stories and more in-depth analytical pieces.
  • Improve written and spoken English.
  • Become more vigorous and confident journalists.
  • Gain insight into American culture, business and politics.

Participation in the Friendly Fellowship enhances career development at home—future fellowships, promotions, new jobs, etc. Our fellows have gone on to become journalism leaders in their newsrooms and around the world.

During their time here, our fellows meet a wide range of journalists and newsmakers. Press Partners staff, Alfred and Jean Friendly Foundation Board members and the Friendly family are integral to the Friendly Fellowship experience. These personal ties last a lifetime.
