Each year, the fellowship brings together exceptional journalists from the U.S. and abroad to share this life-changing experience. The fellows devise a personalized study plan with access to the courses and resources of the University of Michigan. Twice-weekly seminars bring the best from the worlds of journalism and academia directly to you.
- Applicants must be full-time journalists, with a minimum five years professional experience, whose work appears regularly as an employee or freelancer. Print, broadcast, photo, documentary and Internet journalists are eligible.
- There are no academic prerequisites.
Extensive travel is a core component of the Knight-Wallace experience. We place equal emphasis on broadening horizons outside the classroom with news tours to Argentina, Brazil and Turkey and a family trip to Northern Michigan.
Stipends and Family Life includes $70,000 for U.S. fellows (stipends for international fellows vary) and opportunities for our fellow’s partners, spouses and children. The intellectual resources of the university as well as the program’s activities are open to spouses and partners. Children are invited to many after-hour events at Wallace House.
- Fellows are selected on the basis of past performance, future promise and, above all, leadership in some aspect of journalism. Great care goes into assembling classes of fellows that mix the type and size of news organizations as well as personality, geography and background.
- A typical Knight-Wallace Fellowship class comprises 12 U.S. journalists and six international colleagues.
