Deadline: 15 December 2014
The aim of the McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism is to support in-depth, ambitious coverage of critical issues related to the global economy and business. In an age when many news organizations no longer have the resources to tackle complex, time-consuming stories, the Fellowships enable experienced journalists to do the deep reporting needed to produce a serious piece of investigative, analytic, or narrative journalism.
The McGraw Fellowship provides editorial and financial support to journalists who need the time and resources to produce a significant story that provides fresh insight into an important business or economic topic.
The fellows are awarded a grant stipend of $5,000 a month for one to three months.
The McGraw Center will provide editorial supervision during the Fellowship. The McGraw Center will work with fellows to develop their projects during the reporting phase and will edit the completed stories. Assistance in placing the articles will also be provided.
- 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.
