Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in Economics and Business Journalism

The fellowship is open to full-time editorial employees of newspapers, magazines, wire services, digital media and broadcast news organizations as well as to freelance journalists. Applicants must have at least four years of experience. There are no academic prerequisites. The affiliation of applicants is not a factor in the selection process. Journalists from nationally known organizations are not given preference over those from smaller regional media.

The chief criterion for selection is demonstrated journalistic excellence. While essays and letters of recommendation are important parts of the application, the greatest weight is given to work samples. All materials, including letters of reference, college transcripts, essays and work samples should be compiled and submitted with the application form.(link is external)

Applicants' employers, except under unusual circumstances, should submit a letter supporting the application, but applicants are not required to obtain formal employer approval. Fellows are encouraged to return to their employers at the end of their year at Columbia.

Fellowships are announced by May 1. The number of fellowships awarded each year, as well as the level of the living expenses stipend, is determined by the program's financial resources. For the 2017-2018 academic year, we anticipate awarding 10 fellowships that include full tuition plus a $60,000 living stipend.
