The IWMF is pleased to announce its Reporting Fellowships to El Salvador and the U.S./Mexico Border:
Laredo and Eagle Pass, Texas. Fellows will have the opportunity to network with in-country journalists, collaborate with international peers, and access a wide range of sources and sites relevant to their reporting. The IWMF reserves the right to change reporting locations based on the real-time security situation in both locations.
