EIJP - Emerging International Journalists Program

Building on our original content expertise, we began our Emerging International Journalists Program for undergraduate & graduate students and recent graduates to tell the stories of the global work done by our Members.
 
The program acts as a training ground and platform for new voices on international topics connected to the Philadelphia region.
 
In 2013, students from Temple, Drexel, UPenn & Chestnut Hill College contributed.
