Our student sponsorship program is back by popular demand! Last year, about 260 of you sponsored memberships for nearly 400 students. For just $25, you helped us connect with the next generation of investigative reporters. You shared the spirit of IRE – encouraging journalists to grow through training and helping each other.

We ask for your support again this year as we aim to introduce more students to IRE. Please consider sponsoring a $25 student membership on behalf of your alma mater, college media or for an intern at your news organization. You don’t have to know a student – we can help with that. You can also direct your $25 sponsorship to help IRE build a more ethnically and racially diverse organization. Check out our sponsorship site for more details, and please spread the word. (Use the hashtag #SponsorIRE.)
