Introducing the IRE23 Fellows

IRE is proud to welcome 95 journalists to the IRE23 fellowship class! 

IRE and generous benefactors are helping journalists around the country attend the #IRE23 in Orlando, June 22-25. Fellows will attend panels and training sessions, and also network with IRE members from around the country. 

Fellowships and scholarships were available to all journalists, including early-career and student journalists, reporters working in smaller news markets and other journalists from underrepresented communities. All fellows were required to meet IRE’s membership standards.

IRE is proud to help foster the development and training of investigative reporters. Congratulations, IRE23 fellows!
