Edward R. Murrow Press Fellowship – USA ($65,000 worth)

Deadline: March 1, 2016

Applications are now open for the Edward R. Murrow Press Fellowship, which grants an fantastic funded opportunity to applicants who have distinguished credentials in the field of journalism.

The Edward R. Murrow Press Fellow spends nine months full-time in residence at the Council of Foreign Relations’s headquarters in New York. The program enables the fellow to engage in sustained analysis and writing, expand his or her intellectual and professional horizons, and extensively participate in CFR’s active program of meetings and events.

The fellow will be part of the David Rockefeller Studies Program, CFR’s think tank, alongside the program’s full-time, adjunct, and visiting fellows, whose expertise extends across the broad range of significant foreign policy issues facing the United States and the international community.


Applicants must-

  • Have distinguished credentials in journalism, covering international news as a working journalist for print, broadcast, or online media widely available in the United States.
  • Be authorised to work in the United States and will continue to be authorised for the duration of the fellowship.


The duration of the fellowship is nine months, preferably beginning in September. The program awards a stipend of $65,000 as well as a modest travel grant. The fellow is considered an independent contractor rather than an employee of CFR, and is not eligible for employment benefits, including health insurance.

How to Apply

Create an account online via the official website and begin the application process. Along with all the expected details, you must submit a detailed description of your research project as well as your expected CFR participation and any planned fellowship travel.
