Can you identify a challenge that you are passionate about pursuing – one that is critical to the future of journalism?

Apply now for a 2015-16 John S. Knight Journalism Fellowship at Stanford University.

Each year the Knight foundation selects 20 journalists and journalism entrepreneurs from the U.S. and around the world who articulate a specific journalism challenge they want to explore – in and after the 10-month fellowship. The emphasis is on innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership.

Fellows spend a significant portion of their time pursuing their journalism challenges, while also taking advantage of classes and other activities at Stanford and in Silicon Valley. Some fellows may explore ideas that involve technology, others work on challenges that focus on organizational change and innovation. JSK Fellows learn from, and collaborate with, each other. Diversity of background, experience and viewpoints is a fundamental value of the program. Spouses, partners, and families are enthusiastically included in fellowship life.

Fellows receive $65,000 plus supplements for housing, child care and health insurance as well as moving and research/equipment expenses.

The deadline is Dec. 1. Follow this link to apply.
