    Description:

    Graduate and undergraduate students, studying at American colleges and universities, who aspire to become foreign correspondents, are invited to apply for one of twelve $2,000 scholarships to be awarded by the Overseas Press Club Foundation.

In many cases, winning a prestigious OPC Foundation award has helped launch careers.

  • The Essay of approximately 500 words should concentrate on an area of the world or an international issue that is in keeping with the applicant's interest. It can be in the form of a story, news analysis or a essay. Recent winners have written on such diverse topics as playing black jack on the Trans-Siberian Railroad, political activism in Morocco, and social upheaval in China.
  • The Cover Letter should be autobiographical in nature addressing such questions as how the applicant developed an interest in this particular part of the world, or how he or she would use the scholarship to further journalistic ambitions. The judges respond well to applications showing strong reporting skills, color, and understanding or passion.

    Winners will be contacted in December so that arrangements can be made for them to attend the Foundation Scholarship Luncheon in February 2016 in New York City. Recipients are expected to attend.
