The Wharton School has invited business journalists to apply for the Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists flagship program.

After two years of a virtual format, the program will return in-person to Wharton’s Philadelphia campus. There are several funding opportunities available for journalists, including an all-expenses-paid fellowship for U.S.-based journalists offered by the National Press Foundation (NPF).

The Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists, led by the Wharton School’s most prominent professors, help reporters gain a better understanding of key business and economic issues through intensive lectures and hands-on exercises. For more than 50 years, the Seminars have offered participants an opportunity to expand their knowledge, network with journalists from around the world, increase their exposure to leading experts and broaden their perspectives in a stimulating environment.

The program runs Oct. 17-19, 2022. The deadline to apply for National Press Foundation fellowships is Monday, Aug. 29, 2022, and the remaining applications are due Monday, Sept. 26, 2022.

Interested journalists can apply via the NPF application and/or Wharton application.

In recent years, journalists from media outlets such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, PBS NewsHour, The Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Reuters, Fortune, CNN, Marketplace, Bloomberg, and BuzzFeed News have attended the Seminars. Past winners of the National Press Foundation fellowship can be seen here.

Applications are open to those who are employed full-time as a print, broadcast, or online business journalist by legitimate media companies. Additional details about specific funding opportunities can be found here.
