DEADLINE: Knight-Wallace Reporting Fellowships

Event Date: 
February 1, 2023

Each year the Knight-Wallace Fellowships at the University of Michigan summon journalists to think boldly about their craft and enhance their skills to meet the needs of a changing industry. As the U.S. continues to grapple with a global pandemic and continuing economic, social, and political upheaval, ambitious reporting on efforts to move forward is essential.

The in-person Knight-Wallace Fellowships, with a $75,000 stipend, are for the 2023-2024 academic year. Costs for auditing courses and participating in required workshops and fellowship activities are paid for by Wallace House. If the Fellow’s employer does not contribute to insurance coverage, health insurance is provided.

Qualified applicants for the in-person fellowship must have a minimum of five years of experience and be currently working in some aspect of journalism for a news organization or as an independent journalist. We are looking for a diverse range of journalists, including reporters, editors, data experts, visual journalists, audio producers, engagement specialists, designers, developers, entrepreneurs and organizational change agents.

If you are not a full-time journalist, the majority of your work should be in journalism. We do not consider full-time academics, public relations writers, internal trade writers, lobbyists, public advocates, or those seeking a degree.

Up to 20 Fellows from all facets of journalism will be selected.

Deadline for international journalists to apply for the 2023-2024 academic year is December 1, 2022.

Deadline for U.S. journalists to apply for the 2023-2024 academic year is February 1, 2023.
