The University of Michigan in the United States of America is now accepting entries for its Knight-Wallace Journalism Fellowship from exceptional journalists from all over the world for a year of academic study.
The fellowship areas of focus can include but are not limited to, sharpening professional skills, addressing a challenge facing Fellow’s newsroom, digging into data and research for a long-term reporting project, or developing a journalism venture.
The fellowship will select up to 20 Fellows from all facets of journalism who are ready to take the next career step and join in Ann Arbor for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Selected journalists will have access to the resources of a world-class university and dive into a journalism project. Fellows devise a personalized plan of study with access to the courses and resources at the university.
Typically, 12 Americans are joined by six to eight international colleagues. Applicants must be granted a leave of absence for the academic year from their employers.
To be eligible, applicants must have at least five years of professional experience in print, broadcast, or online journalism. Fellows will receive a US$85,000 stipend for living expenses, plus US$5,000 for relocation expenses.
The deadline for international applicants (journalists who do not hold a U.S. passport) to apply for the 2024-2025 academic year is December 1, 2023.
