John S. Knight Journalism Fellowship at Stanford University 2023/2024 for International Journalists


The John S. Knight Journalism Fellowship program at Stanford University aims to foster new ideas in journalism through innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership. Each year it brings up to 20 journalists and journalism innovators from the United States and around the world to spend the year at Stanford.


  • individual coaching, tailored workshops on leadership, a cohort of their peers, and guidance that sparks professional and personal transformation.

  • fellows also have the time and freedom to explore the resources of a world-class university. We help fellows to develop the leadership resilience and mindsets needed to effectively lead and navigate change for decades to come.

  • JSK Fellows are welcomed as members of a global community working to improve journalism and gain new friendships, professional connections, and skills that will continue beyond the fellowship. We invest in each of our fellows as journalists — and as people — for life.

  • a stipend of $95,000, plus a housing supplement to help with your rent. In addition, for fellows with children up through high school graduation, an additional supplemental payment.

  • the cost of Stanford tuition for fellows and Stanford health insurance for fellows, spouses and children.

  • help with finding rental housing near campus.


  • U.S. and international journalists with digital-native and legacy news organizations, independent journalists, journalism entrepreneurs and journalism innovators.

  • Applicants need to have at least five years of full-time professional work experience. A college degree or experience in traditional newsrooms is not necessary.
