Visiting Journalist Fellowship: September 2017 – June 2018 (2-3-month fellowship)
Application Deadline: May 1, 2017 (2 pm EST / 11 am PST)
There is a long, rich history of journalists writing and reporting about topics related to the Russell Sage Foundation’s (RSF) mission to “improve the social and living conditions in the United States.” Because journalists report on issues of relevance to RSF, the foundation has established a Visiting Journalist Fellowship. The fellowship will provide the time and resources needed to carry out an original project while interacting with resident visiting scholars who might help inform the development of the project. RSF will pay visiting journalists an honorarium of $8,000 per month for a full-time visit lasting two to three months. Applicants should be journalists with a minimum of 5-7 years of experience who write or report on social, economic, or political conditions in the United States.
