Midcareer journalists can apply for a fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
The Knight-Wallace Journalism Fellowship, sponsored by the University of Michigan, brings exceptional journalists from the United States and abroad together for a year of academic study. Fellows devise a personalized plan of study with access to the courses and resources at the university.
Selected journalists are able to access the resources of a world-class university and dive into a journalism project.
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.
Applicants must have at least five years of professional experience. Print, broadcast and online journalists are eligible to apply. Fellows receive an US$85,000 stipend for living expenses, plus US$5,000 for relocation expenses.
The deadline for international applicants is Dec. 1. U.S. applicants have until Feb. 1, 2024 to apply.
