Visiting Journalist Fellowship
Application Deadline: May 1, 2018 for visits between September 2018 and June 2019
There is a long, rich history of journalists writing and reporting compellingly 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 to 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.
