Wharton Seminars accepting applications for funding
The Wharton School is now accepting business journalist applications for the Penn Wharton Public Policy Funding, which will allow up to five business reporters who cover aspects of public policy to attend the Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists flagship program in Philadelphia this year.
Each funding opportunity covers the cost of tuition, course materials, most group meals, lodging for three nights and airfare within the U.S. (where appropriate).
In addition, accepted journalists may request private, one-on-one meetings with faculty members of the Penn Wharton Public Policy Initiative.
The funding does not cover any other expenses. Other restrictions may apply.
The Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists, now in its 49th year, offers participants an opportunity to expand their business knowledge and increase their exposure to leading experts in a stimulating environment.
Through intensive lectures and hands-on exercises the program, led by the Wharton School’s most prominent professors, helps participants gain a better understanding of key business and economic issues. Besides Penn Wharton Public Policy Funding, numerous other funding options are available for reporters interested in attending the Seminars.
