We’ve got funds — though you’ll need to apply soon!
The deadline is just four weeks away for winter 2015 applications for the McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism. An initiative launched in early 2014 at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, the McGraw Fellowships provide accomplished journalists with the resources and editorial support to do deeply-reported stories on critical issues related to U.S. business and the global economy.
The upcoming deadline to apply is November 15, 2015.
Each Fellow receives $5,000 a month for up to three months
Open to both freelance and staff journalists with five years experience
Applications accepted from both reporters and editors
No residency required; McGraw Fellows work from their own offices
Already, many of our initial McGraw Fellows have produced distinguished work on a wide variety of topics. Nate Halverson of the Center for Investigative Reporting won an Emmy for story he produced for PBS NewsHour on the questions surrounding the Chinese acquisition of a major U.S. food producer, while a piece by Beth Daley of the New England Center for Investigative Reporting on the growing use of unregulated genetic testshas been picked up by more than a dozen other news outlets. And Maria Perez of the Naples Daily News recently published a bilingual multimedia package on the challenges and opportunities ahead for the Cuban economy as sanctions are eased.
Other McGraw Fellows are working currently on projects exploring such areas as the economic links between the pharmaceutical industry and increased heroin addiction, the growing threat of cyber-attacks on the global financial system, and Silicon Valley’s big bet on meat substitutes.
If you’d like to join them, you’ll find more information about the McGraw Fellowships and the online application at www.mcgrawcenter.org. Feel free to contact us with any questions or if you have a project you’d like to discuss.
