New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute has established a fellowship for international journalists to pursue a master’s degree in one of 10 reporting concentrations over a 16-month period.
“Journalists working on international issues today are challenged to cover increasingly complex stories that span borders, cultures and economies,” says Stephen Solomon, associate director of the Carter Journalism Institute. “We look forward to welcoming two experienced reporters who want to enhance their skills in all media and deepen their perspective on the important issues they cover on a daily basis."
The 2015 World Journalist Fellowship is open to international journalists currently working with a minimum of two years at a print or electronic journalism publication, or a combination of free-lance journalism assignments equal to two years of work.
Fellows will pursue a master’s degree in one of the institute’s 10 concentrations: Business and Economic Reporting; Cultural Reporting and Criticism; Global and Joint Program Studies; Literary Reportage; Magazine Writing; News and Documentary; Reporting New York; Reporting the Nation; Science, Health and Environmental Reporting; and Studio 20: New Media and Digital Innovation.
Applicants must be fluent in English and at least one other language. This fellowship provides tuition and registration fees for two of the three semesters of the journalism graduate program, as well as a stipend for the two semesters of the fellowship. The deadline is January 4, 2015.
