A Knight-Wallace Fellowship recognizes exceptional journalists for their work, leadership and potential with a unique opportunity: an academic year of study, developing new perspectives and networks, and achieving both professional and personal growth at the University of Michigan, one of the world’s finest universities.
For the small group of journalism professionals from the U.S. and abroad selected for a Knight-Wallace Fellowship, the result is a life-changing experience.
- Personalized study plans and access to U-M courses allow you to pursue your own path.
- Regular seminars and visiting speakers bring the best from journalism and academia to you.
- Workshops for fellows provide opportunities to advance your writing, entrepreneurial and multimedia knowledge and skills.
- International travel is a core component of the experience.
- Stipends allow our fellows (and their families/partners) to make the most of a once-in-a-lifetime sabbatical opportunity.
- Applicants must be full-time journalists, with a minimum five years professional experience, whose work appears regularly as an employee or freelancer.
- Print/digital, broadcast, photo, documentary and graphic/visualization journalists are eligible to apply.
- There are no academic prerequisites.
- U.S. fellows receive $70,000 – distributed as $8,750 monthly – from September through April. Stipend details vary for international fellows and are worked out on an individual basis.
- All tuition and course fees at the University of Michigan are paid for by the fellowship. Spouses and partners are invited to partake in university courses as well.
