Twice-weekly seminars bring the best from the worlds of journalism and academia directly to you. Extensive travel is a core component of the Knight-Wallace experience. 

Stipends and Benefits

U.S. fellows receive $70,000 – distributed as $8,750 monthly – from September through April. Stipend details vary for international fellows and are worked out on an individual basis. All tuition and course fees at the University of Michigan are paid for by the fellowship. Spouses and partners are invited to partake in university courses as well.

In addition, all fellowship trips – domestic and international – are covered. If the fellows employer does not contribute to insurance coverage, health insurance is provided to fellows and their family members who join them in Ann Arbor.
