Benefits of a JSK Jounalism Fellowship Fellowship

A Knight Fellowship is invigorating and productive –  for fellows and for journalism. Each year, 20-plus journalists from all over the world come together for 10 months of learning, collaborating, creating and fun. They are among the most adventurous, optimistic and motivated people working in journalism today. They have a unique opportunity to draw on the richness of knowledge and experience at Stanford University and in Silicon Valley. For more information on how fellows spend their year, visit the Life of a Fellow section. To help fellows get the most out of their year, we provide several financial benefits:

Stipend: $65,000 (paid in 10 monthly installments, September through June)

Tuition: We pay this directly to Stanford for you.

Books, research and equipment allowance: $4,000 (may be used for laptops, digital cameras, recorders, software, books, research fees or payments, web design, fees for non-Stanford courses and workshops and travel expenses related to the fellow’s innovation proposal.)

Housing supplement (total for the year): 

  • $3,000 to single fellows, married fellows and those with domestic partners who are not bringing children.
