Two biz journalists named Knight-Wallace Fellows
The University of Michigan has named its Knight-Wallace Journalism Fellows for the 2017-2018 academic year, and the selections include two business journalists.
The business journalists, and their area of study, are:
Candice Choi, food industry writer, Associated Press (New York, N.Y.). Uncovering the social and corporate forces that shape our eating habits.
Mark Magnier, China economics editor, The Wall Street Journal (Beijing, China). Anti-globalization and what it means for China’s expanding soft power.
The group is the 44th class of journalism fellows at the University.
Knight-Wallace Fellows spend an academic year at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor to pursue individual study plans and to engage in collaborative learning through fellowship seminars, training workshops and travel.
Through twice-weekly seminars, Fellows engage with visiting journalists, eminent scholars and creative thinkers from a range of fields. Weeklong international news tours provide broader context to political, economic and social forces shaping their fields of study, and to trends and challenges facing journalism in other countries.
The program is based at Wallace House, a gift from the late newsman Mike Wallace and his wife, Mary. Knight-Wallace Fellows receive a stipend of $70,000 for the eight-month academic year plus full tuition and health insurance.
