Deadline: March 1, 2016
The Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism is accepting applications for its Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in Economics and Business Journalism. The Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in Economics and Business Journalism offers qualified journalists the opportunity to enhance their understanding and knowledge of business, economics and finance in a year-long, full-time program administered by the journalism school. Fellows take courses at Columbia’s graduate schools of journalism, business, law and international affairs; participate in off-the-record seminars and dinner meetings with corporate executives, economists and academics; and attend briefings and field trips to New York-based media companies and financial institutions.
This opportunity is open to business and economics journalists worldwide with at least four years of experience.
Fellows receive free tuition plus a stipend to offset living expenses. For the 2017 academic year, a stipend of US$ 55,000 will be granted to each fellow. Housing is available in a Columbia-affiliated facility.
