Applications into the Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in Economics and Business Journalism are now open. For 2020, the Knight-Bagehot Fellowship offers qualified journalists the opportunity to enhance their understanding and knowledge of business, economics, finance and technology. Journalists will also gain a strong understanding of the business of journalism itself. The Program is full-time, will run year long and is administered by the Journalism School.
In scope and depth, it is the most comprehensive and rigorous business journalism fellowship in the world. Eligible Knight-Bagehot fellows (those with a B.A. degree from an accredited college) may also seek to qualify for a Master of Arts degree in journalism at the end of their year. Fellows will have to opt to complete the course-work required for degree to qualify.
The Fellowship runs during Columbia’s academic year from mid-August through May, and accepts up to 10 Fellows each year. 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.
Who Should Apply
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.
Deadline for application is January 31, 2020.
