The John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships is seeking journalists and journalism entrepreneurs to join us in creating the future of journalism.
We’re now accepting applications for the 2016-17 JSK Fellowships. The deadline is Dec. 1, 2015.
What makes a great JSK Fellow? A passionate belief that the challenges facing media today provide opportunities to redefine journalism and create a more informed, connected and empowered public. People who have a bias toward action, who make things happen. If you’re looking for a sabbatical, we’re not the program for you.
Each year, we select about 20 journalists and journalism innovators from the United States and around the world and bring them together for 10 months at Stanford University, in the heart of Silicon Valley.
Successful applicants have identified and articulated a specific journalism challenge they want to address. We encourage and challenge them to let go of old assumptions and learn new ways of thinking and working — while remaining true to one of our core missions: to improve the quality of news and information reaching the public.
They are seeking a pool of applicants who are diverse in all ways: race, ethnicity, gender, media background, region of the country, regions of the world, perspectives and life experiences.
Ideally, US candidates should have at least seven years of experience, and international candidates should have at least five years of experience.
Fellows receive a stipend of USD 65,000 as well as supplements for housing, childcare, health insurance and moving expenses. Tuition costs at Stanford are also covered.
How to apply?
The deadline for application is 1 December 2015.
