Do you -- or a reporter you know -- have a great idea for an investigative or enterprise business story, but no funds to get it done?
Applications are now open for the Fall 2016 McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism. The Fellowships, awarded twice a year by the McGraw Center for Business Journalism at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, provide experienced journalists with funds and editorial support to produce in-depth stories on critical issues related to the global economy, finance and business.
The upcoming deadline to apply is December 15, 2016. The spring 2017 deadline will be May 31, 2017.
• Each Fellow receives $5,000 a month for up to three months
• No residency is required; McGraw Fellows work from their own offices
• Open to both freelance and staff journalists with at least five years experience
• Applications accepted from both reporters and editors
Previous McGraw Fellows have worked on a wide range of topics, from problems in the fast-growing, unregulated market for diagnostic genetic tests and the questions raised by the Chinese acquisition of a major U.S. food company to online giant Amazon’s difficult expansion into Europe and Silicon Valley’s efforts to build a better (plant-based) burger that could make the meat industry obsolete.
