A Knight-Wallace Fellowship recognizes exceptional journalists for their work, leadership and potential with a unique opportunity: an academic year of study, developing new perspectives and networks, and achieving both professional and personal growth at the University of Michigan, one of the world’s finest universities.
For the small group of journalism professionals from the U.S. and abroad selected for a Knight-Wallace Fellowship, the result is a life-changing experience.
- Personalized study plans and access to U-M courses allow you to pursue your own path.
- Regular seminars and visiting speakers bring the best from journalism and academia to you.
- Workshops for fellows provide opportunities to advance your writing, entrepreneurial and multimedia knowledge and skills.
- International travel is a core component of the experience.
- Stipends allow our fellows (and their families/partners) to make the most of a once-in-a-lifetime sabbatical opportunity.
Stipends and Family Life includes $70,000 for U.S. fellows (stipends for international fellows vary) and opportunities for our fellow’s partners, spouses and children. The intellectual resources of the university as well as the program’s activities are open to spouses and partners. Children are invited to many after-hour events at Wallace House.
Criteria for selection are simple. We seek the best and brightest in journalism today, mid-career professionals with at least five years of professional experience and solid track records, great future promise and, above all, demonstrated leadership in some aspect of journalism.
A typical Knight-Wallace Fellowship class comprises 12 U.S. journalists and six international colleagues.
Applicants must be full-time journalists, with a minimum five years professional experience, whose work appears regularly as an employee or freelancer. Print, broadcast, photo, documentary and Internet journalists are eligible. There are no academic prerequisites.
Employee applicants must obtain a leave of absence from October 1 through April and return to their place of employment where applicable. All fellows must agree not to publish or broadcast during the fellowship, maintain Ann Arbor residency and attend all program seminars and meetings.
Fellows are selected on the basis of past performance, future promise and, above all, leadership in some aspect of journalism. Great care goes into assembling classes of fellows that mix the type and size of news organizations as well as personality, geography and background. Typically, 12 Americans are joined by six international colleagues.
Selection is determined by a committee of distinguished journalists and University of Michigan faculty. U.S. finalists are interviewed at Wallace House in April and announced in early May.
