McGraw Center seeks applications for fall fellowships

August 14, 2021

Posted by Chris Roush

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 reporting fellowships in the summer of 2014.

It provides grants up to $15,000 and editorial support to experienced journalists that enables them to do the deep reporting necessary to produce high-impact investigative and enterprise stories that tackle critical issues related to the global economy, finance and business.

The deadline to apply for Fall 2021 Fellowships is Sept. 30, 2021. Applications for the Spring 2022 Fellowships will be due March 31, 2022. (Please note: These dates were changed from an earlier announced fall deadline.)

It will also 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 McGraw Center at mcgrawcenter@journalism.cuny.edu.

Fellowship stories must have an economic or financial angle, but you don’t need to be a business reporter to apply. Many of the previous Fellows have been generalists, or cover beats such as health care, education or the environment. Others focus on issues such as economic inequality or corporate accountability.
