John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships at Stanford.

Each year, they bring together up to 20 fellows from around the world to work on ideas to address the most urgent problems facing journalism. If you aspire to be a leader who can help reimagine and transform journalism, you should apply for our program.

From September to June, JSK Fellows spend their time on individual and collaborative projects to address these challenges. Fellows also participate in special workshops and weekly events, explore the abundant resources on the Stanford campus and in Silicon Valley, and have the option of sitting in on classes. Stanford is home to some of the leading initiatives in journalism and communication, including the Computational Journalism Lab, the Virtual Human Interaction Lab and the Brown Institute for Media Innovation. We enthusiastically include spouses, partners and families in fellowship life. If you are looking for a sabbatical or a solitary experience, the JSK Fellowships is not the program for you.
