A JSK Fellowship is an individual experience that is intertwined with twice-weekly cohort events that include leadership workshops, skills training and discussions with guest experts. Other than these commitments to the cohort, fellows have a lot of freedom to decide how to spend their time and how to approach the journalism challenge they want to focus on. There is not a single prescription for a successful fellowship year. We are seeking journalists who are eager to explore, identify and test ideas for improving access to news and information people need to create and sustain robust democratic communities.
- Applicants need to have at least five years of full-time professional journalism experience. We do not require applicants to have a college degree or experience in traditional newsrooms. (Working as a student journalist or summer intern is a great experience, but is not considered part of the five-year threshold).
- U.S. and international journalists with digital-native and legacy news organizations, independent journalists, journalism entrepreneurs and journalism innovators.
- Our fellowship does not fund or support book projects or reporting projects, and we are not a business accelerator.
- Individual coaching and tailored workshops to help develop the leadership resilience and mindsets needed to navigate and lead change.
- An intentionally designed cohort experience that fosters opportunities to form meaningful and lasting personal and professional relationships.
- Membership in a global JSK alumni community.
- A stipend of $95,000, plus a housing supplement to help with rent.
- Stanford tuition for fellows and Stanford health insurance for fellows, spouses and children. We also give fellows tips and advice about finding rental housing.
