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, finance, and technology, as well as gain a strong understanding of the business of journalism itself, in a yearlong, full-time program administered by the Journalism School.
Fellows typically take courses at Columbia’s graduate schools of journalism, business, law, and international affairs; participate in off-the-record seminars with media, corporate and tech practitioners, and meet weekly with media CEOs, top editors, journalism entrepreneurs, taking advantage of Columbia’s access to New York’s media, business and tech ecosystem.
Opportunity Focus Areas:
- International affairs
- Digital media
- Finance/ Economics
ALL WORLD COUNTRIES.
1 academic year from mid-August through May.
- 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.
- There are no academic prerequisites to apply and work affiliation of applicants is not a major factor in the selection process.
- While a majority of the fellows typically come from the US, we specifically look for candidates who can help deliver better business journalism in all parts of the world, in multimedia formats.
- The chief criterion for selection is demonstrated journalistic excellence. While essays and letters of recommendation are important parts of the application, the greatest weight is given to previous work samples. All materials, including letters of reference, college transcripts, essays, and work samples should be compiled and submitted with the application form.
- Applicants’ employers, except under unusual circumstances, should submit a letter supporting the application, but applicants are not required to obtain formal employer approval to apply for and get admitted to the program.
- Fellows are encouraged to return to their employers at the end of their year at Columbia.
- Fellowship selections are announced by May 1, 2019.
- The number of fellowships awarded each year, as well as the level of the living expenses stipend, is determined by the program’s financial resources.
- For the 2019-2020 academic year, starting in August 2019, we anticipate awarding 10 fellowships that cover full tuition, plus a $60,000 living stipend
- Each Fellow receives free tuition, plus a stipend to offset living expenses in New York City and healthcare. For the 2019-2020 academic year, a stipend of $60,000 is expected to be granted to each fellow. Housing is available in a Columbia affiliated facility.
