In 2007, in response to cutbacks at major news organizations, the Investigative Reporting Program at UC Berkeley established the nation’s first postgraduate fellowships in investigative reporting. This year-long program is without peer at any academic institution. It is designed to enable select journalists with a proven ability to tell complex stories in the public interest, to pursue a story for up to one year by providing them with a salary, up to $10,000 in approved travel expenses, benefits, and editorial guidance.

The 2020-21 IRP fellowship program has been suspended due to a campus-wide hiring freeze.
