The Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Center for Business Journalism, an initiative of the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York, began offering Fellowships to accomplished journalists in the summer of 2014. Nearly three dozen veteran journalists have since been awarded grants of up to $15,000.
The aim of the McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism is to support high-impact, ambitious coverage of critical issues related to the global economy, finance and business. In an age when many news organizations no longer have the resources to tackle complex, time-consuming stories, the Fellowships enable experienced journalists to do the deep reporting needed to produce a serious piece of investigative or enterprise journalism.
You’ll find more information on its current Fellows and their projects here; past Fellows can be found on the following pages: 2018 Fellows; 2017 Fellows; 2016 Fellows; 2015 Fellows; 2014 Fellows. The Fellowship Stories page contains links to all of the stories they have published.
The McGraw Center generally accepts applications twice a year. The upcoming deadline for Summer 2020 Fellowships is July 17, 2020. Applications for the Winter 2021 Fellowships will be due Jan. 15, 2021.
However, it will consider time-sensitive projects on a case-by-case basis outside of the deadline periods. If you have a project that might qualify, please contact the Center at firstname.lastname@example.org
