Knight-Bagehot applications now being accepted
The Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism is now accepting applications for Knight-Bagehot Fellowships in Economics & Business Journalism for the 2017-2018 academic year.
The program provides full tuition and a living stipend of $60,000.
The fellowship is open to full-time editorial employees of newspapers, magazines, wire services, digital media and broadcast news organizations as well as to freelance journalists.
Applicants must have at least four years of experience. There are no academic prerequisites.
The affiliation of applicants is not a factor in the selection process. Journalists from nationally known organizations are not given preference over those from smaller regional media.
The core of the Knight-Bagehot curriculum consists of courses offered by Columbia University.
Beginning with the 2017-2018 academic year, Knight-Bagehot fellows will be allowed to choose from two academic tracks: the Certificate in Economics and Business Journalism or the Master of Arts in Journalism.
The deadline to apply is Feb. 15, 2017. To apply, go here.
