Opportunity Description

The McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism by MacGraw Center for Business Journalism is open now. Candidates of any nationality can apply for this opportunity. The Harold W. MacGraw Center for Business Journalism offers experienced journalists grants up to $15,000 as well as the editorial assistance required to produce in-depth enterprise and investigative stories that explore important economic, financial, or business issues across a wide range of topics. You don’t have to cover business to apply; several of their past Fellows were generalists or covered beats like health care, education, or the environment. Others have concentrated on topics like corporate accountability or economic injustice.

Key Details

They accept submissions in text, audio, and short-form video from both staff and freelance journalists, and particularly appreciate those that combine formats to produce a multimedia package. They seek out projects that tackle significant regional or local concerns, as well as those that tell gripping global or national stories or profile underrepresented populations or problems. It is highly recommended that journalists of color and those with various backgrounds apply.
