Knight fellowship at Standford

Knight fellowships at Stanford University open to international journalists

Journalists from around the world with minimum seven years' professional experience are invited to apply for the chance to be Knight Fellows in the U.S. at Stanford University, receiving nine months of study, intellectual growth, and personal change from 2009-2010. Deadline: December 15.

Eight selected fellows will take classes from mid-September to mid-June in any area of Stanford that interests them; conduct independent study with faculty, and participate in special weekly seminars with distinguished Stanford scholars, business and political leaders and cultural and social observers.

The fellowship is open to reporters, editors and anchors; photographers, producers and news directors; editorial cartoonists and Web gurus; and more. This round of fellowships will especially emphasize journalistic innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership, including developing and strengthening press freedoms around the world.

The fellowship includes a stipend of US$60,000 plus supplements for housing, child care, health insurance and books.
