Are you interested in becoming a foreign correspondent? Or maybe there's just one important story overseas that you've always wanted to cover? Whether you're fresh out of school or a mid-career journalist looking to make a change, international reporting is an exciting way to use your skills to change how we see the world.

This session, organized by the Global Journalism Task Force, as part of the 2019 NABJ Convention, will share the advice of both young and seasoned journalists who have had the opportunity to travel the world unearthing relevant, exciting news stories. We will explore how you can apply for grants and fellowships, even while in school, to fund your overseas trips. We'll also give you important advice on how to stay safe while reporting from abroad. Our panelists will share their own experiences and help you learn how to pitch that first international story.
