The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is currently inviting applications for Edward R. Murrow Press Fellowship program to promote the quality of responsible and discerning journalism that exemplified the work of Edward R. Murrow.
Launched in 1949 with support from the Carnegie Corporation, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and renamed in 1965, the program was in Edward R. Murrow honor and is supported by the CBS Foundation and Ford Foundation. One CFR resident fellowship is awarded each year to a distinguished foreign correspondent or editor.

- The duration of the fellowship is nine months, preferably beginning in September.
- The program awards a stipend of $65,000 as well as a modest travel grant.
- The fellow is considered an independent contractor rather than an employee of CFR, and is not eligible for employment benefits, including health insurance.

- Firm grounding in foreign policy and international relations,
- A clear, creative, and original application statement
- The program is only open to applicants who have distinguished credentials in the field of journalism and who have covered international news as a working journalist for print, broadcast, or online media widely available in the United States.
