Knight Fellowships at Stanford

Knight Fellowships at Stanford
Stipend: $60,000+
Deadline for international applicants is: December 15, 2007.
Eight international journalists win Knight Fellowships at Stanford each year. The fellows get nine months of study, intellectual growth and professional change at one of the world’s great universities, right in the middle of Silicon Valley – in classes, independent study and research and special forums with academic and journalism leaders. At the end of the year they return to the rapidly changing journalism landscape with a renewed sense of purpose, deeper knowledge and tools to tackle the challenges ahead.

Fellows receive a stipend of $60,000 plus tuition, and supplements for health insurance, books, housing and childcare. All benefits and activities of the program are open to spouses and partners of Fellows.
We’re looking for:
– Reporters and editors and anchors
– Photographers and producers and news directors
– Editorial cartoonists and multimedia producers – and more
We want journalists who have already accomplished a lot and are ambitious to do more. Candidates must have five years professional, full-time experience.
To apply, go to: http://knight.stanford.edu/application/index.html and complete the application form. Applications must be postmarked by December 15, 2007 to be considered for the 2008-2009 academic year.
For more information, please visit: http://knight.stanford.edu/ or email knight-info@lists.stanford.edu

I did not know that Gary Knight was funding fellowships already!

Same foundation also funds some good work at the International Center for Journalists, giving fellowships to journalists in iffy media spots like Burma, Russia, and Egypt. From what little I know, they seem to be a good organization.

I think the more experienced folks out there should be jumping at the chance to hang out in the California sunshine and get paid for it. If I weren’t stuck here in Europe I’d be all over it myself!

Sounds like a dream come true, but unfortunately I don’t five years of full time experience to claim :(

Given the talent demonstrated by the people on this site, the odds of a LSer securing a Knight Fellowship seem pretty good.

“The program also reserves one fellowship each year, using special funding from Yahoo!, for a journalist from country where there are restrictions on freedom of the press, either by governmental agencies or other forces.”
