Knight International Journalism Fellowships

The Knight International Journalism Fellowships help to create news outlets and programming, training centres and schools, and innovative resources to improve the quality and free flow of news in the public interest around the world. Knight International Journalism Fellows work with local partner organizations to make lasting, visible changes that improve the quality and free flow of news in the public interest around the world.

Fellows have established media training centers, journalism associations, academic programs, citizen journalism networks, and units of investigative reporters. They have created mobile news services and online databases to track corruption. They have developed topical journalism manuals and curricula in more than a dozen languages. With the help of our fellows, local journalists have improved environmental, business and health coverage, and uncovered corruption and mismanagement, improving living conditions in their societies. Each project is designed to ensure that the impacts and achievements last beyond the fellowship.

Candidates who wish to propose a project and become a Knight International Journalism Fellow should submit a proposal and a fellowship application. If the idea is selected, The Knights Fellowship Programme will recruit the candidate and support a journalist or media manager to work on a fellowship project for at least a year. Candidates may also send in a proposal for a project they would like to run as a Knight fellow. Successful proposals will outline a very specific idea and the lasting, visible results that will be achieved at the end of the fellowship.

Deadline: Applications are accepted throughout the year.
