DEADLINE: McGraw Fellowships for Business Journalism

Event Date: 
March 31, 2022

Grants up to $15K to Produce High-Impact Business Journalism

The McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism, an initiative of the Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY, is designed to support high-impact economic and business journalism. The McGraw Fellowships provide up to $15,000 and editorial support for experienced journalists to produce deeply-reported investigative or enterprise stories on important economic, financial or business topics. No residency is required; McGraw Fellows work from their own offices. Open to freelance journalists, as well as staff reporters and editors working at news organizations. Five years professional journalism experience is needed.

We accept applications twice a year. The deadline to apply for Fall 2021 Fellowships was September 30, 2021. Applications for the Spring 2022 Fellowships will be due March 31, 2022. However, we will consider time-sensitive projects on a case-by-case basis outside of the deadline periods. (Please note: We changed these dates from an earlier deadline.)

What kind of work do we support? Previous McGraw Fellows have worked on a wide range of topics – and you don’t need to be a business reporter to apply. Many McGraw Fellows have been generalists, or cover other beats such as health care or the environment. Here are a few examples:
