Get to the bottom of your story and the top of your field. IRE can help you enhance your daily reporting with resources you won’t find anywhere else.
IRE is committed to developing the next generation of investigative reporters by introducing more students to the organization. To do this, we need your help. Please consider sponsoring a $25 student membership on behalf of your alma mater, college media or for an intern at your news organization. You can also donate a membership to help support IRE’s efforts to build a more diverse organization.
If you decide to sponsor a student, please promote the program through social media. Use the hashtag #SponsorIRE and tweet a link to this page.
You can sponsor a student membership in three ways:
1. Sponsor an individual student. That student will receive an email that you have sponsored them for one year. If they already have an active membership, it will be extended for another year.
2. Donate a general student membership. This option allows you to donate a membership to your alma mater or college media organization. IRE will work with professors and other campus leaders to find a student. That student will receive an email that you have sponsored their membership for one year. If you happen to know of a professor, adviser or student editor at your chosen institution, you can list their name and email on the form. This would be greatly appreciated, but is not required.
You can also choose to direct your student sponsorship to support IRE’s efforts to build a more diverse organization. IRE will work with a variety of universities to match these donations with students.
3. Donate to our student fund. Make a general donation of any amount to help send students of color, those who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community, or with disabilities to training
