Prestigious Knight Journalism Fellowships Opens Application

Are you a journalist with inovative ideas? Then, this might be just what you need to take your trade to the next level.

The John S. Knight Journalism Fellowship at Stanford University is seeking for journalists and journalism entrepreneurs who have a track record of accomplishment and are ambitious to do more to apply for its 2014-2015 programme.

Journalists who have an innovative idea or journalism entrepreneurs who want to gain new skills and broaden their perspectives can apply.

The programme features 10 months of experimenting, testing and creating ideas, leveraging the many resources of Stanford University and Silicon Valley.

John S. Knight Fellowship supports passionate journalists, innovators, and entrepreneurs as they create the new models, tools and approaches that are redefining journalism.

Since 1996, their core aim remains to improve the quality of news and information reaching the public, by giving reporters and editors free run of the classrooms and libraries of a great university, which would pay off in superb journalism.

    Recent fellows have launched journalism startups, created cross-border investigative reporting partnerships and crafted tools to enhance reporting on immigrant communities, to cite a few examples.

    Fellows are welcome from all over the world and from all types of journalism, including daily newspapers, radio and television, non-profit news startups, blogs and ethnic media to explore and use Stanford, in addition to working on their innovation proposals.
