McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism

Learn about Business Journalism with McGraw Fellowship

The McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism provides editorial and financial support to journalists who need the time and resources to produce a significant investigative or enterprise story that provides fresh insight into an important business, financial or economic topic.

This is not a residency Fellowship, however.

All Fellows work from their own offices.

The Fellowship provides a grant of up to $15,000 for each project.

The exact amount will depend on the time it takes to complete the project and the expenses needed; freelance journalists may also use some of the funding as a stipend for living expenses during the Fellowship.

Main criteria

  • The McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism is open to anyone with at least five years professional experience in journalism. Freelance journalists, as well as reporters and editors currently working at a news organization or a journalism non-profit, may apply;
  • Applicants should submit a well-focused story proposal of no more than three pages through the accompanying online form. Think of it as pitch, much like you would submit to an editor at a newspaper, magazine, digital outlet, or radio station: give us enough preliminary reporting and documentation to demonstrate that the story is solid;
  • In addition, applicants should enclose three journalism samples. The samples should be professionally published work that showcases your ability to tackle an in-depth story in the proposed medium;
  • No budget is required at the time of application. Applicants chosen as finalists will be asked to provide an estimated budget at that time.
