Applications are invited for World Journalist Fellowship for the year 2017. This fellowship provides support to international journalists who enroll in one of their graduate programs in journalism at the NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute.
The Fellowship is designed to help promising journalists fulfil their potential; while applicants with strong experience will have an advantage, journalists who demonstrate journalism smarts, drive, ambition and commitment stand an excellent chance as well.
At New York University, they believe that journalism has a serious public mission, and can make a difference in the world. University wants to educate those who agree. Opportunities abound in the media world, but the opportunity to do compelling work that informs, engages and matters to the societies in which they live—this is what drives their faculty, motivates their students, and shapes their basic approach.
