The International Reporting Project (IRP) is an independent non-profit journalism organization based in Washington D.C. at the Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). Created in 1998 to encourage U.S. journalists to report on important but under-covered international stories, the IRP has provided opportunities for more than 330 U.S. journalists to report from more than 90 countries around the world. Stories by IRP Fellows and Gatekeeper Editors have appeared in all major newspapers, magazines, TV and radio and online news organizations and have won many journalism awards, including Emmy Awards, Overseas Press Club Awards and others.
