15 JANUARY 2018 / The SNF supports the CSIS Practicum in Modern Journalism

The week of January 8th, 2018, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, D.C. hosted the first CSIS Practicum in Modern Journalism: Reporting on International Affairs. The program is exclusively supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).

CSIS invited 10 graduate students and one faculty member from The Newhouse School at Syracuse University to Washington, D.C. for a one-week practicum. During the week-long practicum, journalism students worked with CSIS’s award-winning multimedia production team, the Andreas C. Dracopoulos iDeas Lab, along with senior scholars and research mentors. They explored a thematic foreign policy issue and completed a reporting assignment centered around an accompanying multimedia project. This was the first of four such sessions to take place this year.

CSIS was established in Washington, D.C. more than 50 years ago as a bipartisan, nonprofit policy research organization dedicated to providing strategic insights and policy solutions to help decision makers chart a course toward a better world. The SNF has collaborated with CSIS on various projects since 1998, including the implementation of discussion series and concept papers, among others.
