Katherine Pither of Media Helping Media notes that The Wall Street Journal and the journalism program at New York University are once again offering two fellowships to Asian reporters to learn business journalism.
Pither writes, “The fellowship covers tuition expenses and fees for two of the three semesters of the 16-month programme, as well as providing a stipend of US$22,000. Travel to New York is also taken care of as well as some incidental costs, such as textbooks. Previous fellows have reported that this adequately covers living expenses and at least one trip home.
“The Journalism in Asia Fellowship has proved successful in launching the careers of a number of business journalists.
“Former fellow Serena Ng is now a reporter for The Wall Street Journal in New York, where her financial and business reporting won her the 2008 Gerald Loeb Business Journalism Award for Best Writing.
“To qualify for the programme, applicants must be working full-time as journalists in Asia with a minimum of two years experience in print or electronic publishing.”
