Fellowship supports in-depth, ambitious coverage of critical issues related to the global economy and business.
This is a fellowship program for journalists.
The McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism is open to anyone with at least five years professional experience in journalism.
Freelance journalists, as well as reporters and editors currently working at a news organization, may apply.
The stipend of $5,000 a month for up to three months, is intended to cover travel and research expenses incurred in reporting the stories and to assist with the Fellows’ living expenses.
Where travel or other expenses are exceptionally high, they will consider covering additional expenses approved in advance.
Applicants should submit a well-focused story proposal of no more than three pages through the accompanying online form. Think of it as pitch, much like you would submit to an editor at a newspaper, magazine, digital outlet, or radio station: give us enough preliminary reporting and documentation to demonstrate that the story is solid. The proposal should highlight what’s new and significant about the story, why it matters and what its potential impact might be. If the subject has been covered elsewhere, it should note where those stories have run and how the proposed piece would differ. Applicants should also outline a proposed reporting plan and a timeline for completing the story, and let us know if a media outlet has indicated interest in the story or has committed to run it. In addition, applicants should enclose three journalism samples. The samples should be professionally published work that showcases your ability to tackle an in-depth story in the proposed medium. Please also provide with a resume and references from two editors or others familiar with your work.
Application Deadline: 15 Dec 2014
