DEADLINE: JULY 31, 2020 – McGraw Centre for Business Journalism, an initiative of the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York, is calling for applications for its 2020 McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism.
The McGraw Fellowship provides editorial and financial support to journalists who need the time and resources to produce a significant investigative or enterprise story that provides fresh insight into an important business, financial or economic topic.
The Fellowship provides a grant of up to $15,000 for each project.
The exact amount will depend on the time it takes to complete the project and the expenses needed; freelance journalists may also use some of the funding as a stipend for living expenses during the Fellowship.
The aim of the Fellowship is to support high-impact, ambitious coverage of critical issues related to the global economy, finance and business.
The McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism is open to anyone with at least five years of professional experience in journalism.
Freelance journalists, as well as reporters and editors currently working at a news organisation or a journalism non-profit, may apply.
