John S. Knight Professional Journalism Fellowships

The John S. Knight professional journalism fellowships at Stanford give outstanding mid-career journalists the chance to broaden and deepen their understanding of a changing world. The goal of this Fellowship program is to improve the quality of news and information reaching the public through the news media: print, broadcast and cyberspace. Knight Fellows take classes at Stanford, attend special seminars with guest speakers and pursue independent study. At the end of the year, they return to their news organizations.

Between six and eight fellowships are offered each year to professional journalists from news organizations outside the United States. Candidates must have at least five years’ professional experience and be fluent in English.


Fellows receive a stipend of $60,000 plus tuition, supplements for housing, child care, health insurance, books and round-trip airfare.

All benefits and activities of the program are open to spouses and partners of Fellows.

The international application deadline is December 15. The 2008-2009 Application Form is available here.
