Yale Globalist: Reporting Trip

Each summer, the Yale Globalist, Yale University's international affairs magazine, sends a group of student reporters to a developing country on a reporting trip. In the past, we've traveled to Bosnia and Serbia, Vietnam, South Africa, Chile, Turkey, Indonesia, Tanzania, India, China, Venezuela, and Belarus. This year, 14 students will travel to Morocco, where we will write about topics as diverse as language policies, midwifery, handicraft art, migration, argan oil production, and climate change. In addition to writing a full-length article for a Morocco-themed print issue of our magazine in the fall, each reporter will also publish two blog posts on our website from Morocco.

The reporting trip gives students the opportunity to gain valuable experience in serious travel journalism. Students arrange and conduct their own interviews, set up meetings with NGOs and major companies, and plan day trips to historical sites and other locations of interest. They collaborate with other student writers to overcome unexpected challenges and produce interesting, relevant content.

But international travel is expensive. The Globalist tries to defray costs for student travelers by paying for room, board, and transportation to and from interviews, but we need your help! Most of our trip members are paying their own way, and an extra $2500 would allow us to lighten their burden.

Any money raised over our goal will go towards future trips, allowing us to continue to make this once-in-a-lifetime student reporting trip an opportunity for all aspiring writers, regardless of their economic means.

Thank you for your support! You can keep up with our trip by reading our blog posts on tyglobalist.org  .

All the best,

Aastha and Claire, Trip Leaders
