The Knight-Wallace Fellowships offer accomplished journalists from all facets of the profession an academic year of study and collaborative learning at the University of Michigan. Reporters, editors, data experts, designers, visual and audio journalists, and entrepreneurs from the U.S. and abroad expand their knowledge, develop new ideas, pilot special programs, and address challenges facing the journalism industry. All fellows pursue an in-depth project or research plan. International travel is typically a component of the Knight-Wallace experience. All fellows receive a $75,000 living stipend, plus health insurance. The international application deadline is Dec. 1. Application deadline for U.S. citizens is Feb. 1. The academic year runs from late August – April.
