Applications are now open to mid-career journalists for the Knight-Bagehot fellowship in economics and business journalism at Columbia University.
It offers journalists the opportunity to enhance their understanding and knowledge of business, economics, finance and technology, as well as gain a strong understanding of the business of journalism itself.
The fellowship is open to full-time editorial employees of newspapers, magazines, wire services, digital media, television and radio news organizations, as well as to freelance journalists, from anywhere in the world.
Applicants must have at least four years of business/economics/finance journalism experience and have received a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) from an accredited university.
The Knight-Bagehot fellowship is an academic program in which the fellows are enrolled in classes and receive grades for their work.
The fellowship runs during Columbia’s academic year from mid-August through May and accepts up to 10 fellows each year.
Each fellow receives free tuition, health insurance and a stipend to offset living expenses in New York City.
The deadline for applications is Jan. 31, 2023.
