The John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships at Stanford is a program for accomplished journalists and journalism entrepreneurs. Each year, 12 U.S. and eight International journalists are selected to spend an academic year at Stanford working on a journalism challenge they have identified.
This ambitious program is a force for journalism innovation,
entrepreneurship and leadership. Fellows spend their time absorbing
knowledge, improving skills and developing prototypes that will enable
them to be effective innovators for years to come.
And they do it the way Knight Fellows always have: They set their own
course and alter it as they see fit. They leverage the resources of a
great university and Silicon Valley. And they learn from rich
interactions with journalists from around the world.
What are we looking for?
We want journalists and journalism innovators who have already
accomplished a lot and are ambitious to do more. Ideally, candidates
will have at least five years of professional experience.
receive a stipend of $65,000, plus supplements for moving expenses,
health insurance, books, housing and childcare. All program activities
and most classes are open to spouses and partners of Fellows.
The application deadline is Dec. 1, 2013, for international
applicants and Jan. 15, 2014, for U.S. applicants. For more information,
