Alfred Friendly Press Fellowship Foundation

The Alfred Friendly Press Fellowships (AFPF), an American non-profit, not-governmental organization, is a cultural and professional exchange program for journalists. Through AFPF, journalists and their readers gain a broader view of the world and journalism thereby creating mutual understanding and peaceful relations between Americans and people of other nations. Fellows return home with new journalistic skills and knowledge, and a desire to advance a free, responsible press in their own countries–without which democracy does not exist.

Since 1984, the core program has provided developing world journalists the opportunity to work as reporters at American newspapers for five months. The program, which runs from mid-March to early September, is offered annually to print and online journalists between the ages of 25 and 35. Partner Pat Stueve serves as Treasurer and is a member of the Alfred and Jean Friendly Foundation Board of Directors. The Board concentrates on organization, policy and fund-raising for the Fellowship.
