Announcing the 2011-12 Knight-Bagehot Fellows
May 02, 2011
Ten Knight-Bagehot Fellows in economics and business journalism have been named by the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism for the 2011-2012 academic year. They include journalists from The Financial Times, The Dallas Morning News, Austin American-Statesman, Thomson Reuters, Dow Jones Newswires and WNYC Radio.
The mid-career fellowships provide full tuition and a living stipend of $50,000 for experienced journalists to take graduate courses at Columbia's Schools of Business, Law, and International and Public Affairs. Fellows also attend special seminars at the Journalism School led by scholars and business experts during the nine-month program, which begins in August. The program is open to journalists with at least four years of experience.
"These journalists represent the best and brightest in business journalism," said Terri Thompson, director of the program. "We look forward to welcoming them for a rigorous program of study here at Columbia."
