2020/2021 Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in Economics and Business Journalism at Colombia University ( $60,000 Stipend and Fully Funded)


Application Deadline: January 31, 2020.

The Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in Economics and Business Journalism offers qualified journalists the opportunity to enhance their understanding and knowledge of business, economics, finance and technology, as well as gain a strong understanding of the business of journalism itself, in a yearlong, full-time program administered by the Journalism School.


The fellowship is open to full-time editorial employees of newspapers, magazines, wire services, digital media, television and radio news organizations, as well as to freelance journalists, from anywhere in the world.

Applicants must have at least four years of business/economics/finance journalism experience.

There are no academic prerequisites to apply and work affiliation of applicants is not a major factor in the selection process. While a majority of the fellows typically come from the US, we specifically look for candidates who can help deliver better business journalism in all parts of the world, in multimedia formats.


The core of the Knight­-Bagehot curriculum consists of courses (link is external) offered by Columbia University. Beginning with the 2017­-2018 academic year, Knight­-Bagehot fellows will be allowed to choose from two academic tracks: a Certificate in Economics and Business Journalism, or the Master of Arts in Journalism.
