McGraw Center now accepting fellowship applications

May 9, 2019

Posted by Chris Roush

The McGraw Center for Business Journalism is now accepting applications for the Summer 2019 McGraw Fellowships for Business Journalism, an initiative of the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York.

The Fellowships, awarded twice a year, provide experienced journalists with the funds and editorial support needed to produce a high-impact story on a critical issue related to the U.S. economy, business or finance.

The upcoming deadline to apply is June 28.

  • Each Fellow receives a grant of up to $15,000
  • No residency is required; McGraw Fellows work from their own offices
  • Fellowships are open to both freelance and staff journalists with at least five years experience
  • Applications in any type of media — print, audio, video and digital — will be considered

What kind of stories do we support? Previous McGraw Fellows have explored a wide variety of topics — and you don’t need to be a business reporter to apply. Many of our Fellows have been generalists, or follow heath care, the environment or other beats.

You’ll find more information, an FAQ, and the application at www.mcgrawcenter.org. If you have questions or a project you’d like to discuss, please contact us at mcgrawcenter@journalism.cuny.edu.

Winter 2020 applications will be due Jan. 3, 2020.
