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

Applications are now open for the Winter 2019 McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism, an initiative of the Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY 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. Deadline for Summer 2019 Fellowships was June 28, 2019. Applications for the Winter 2020 Fellowships are due January 3, 2020.

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:
