Opportunities for Journalists
Russell Sage Foundation
Visiting Journalist Fellowship
Application Deadline: May 1, 2018 for visits between September 2018 and June 2019
There is a long, rich history of journalists writing and reporting compellingly about topics related to the Russell Sage Foundation’s (RSF) mission to “improve the social and living conditions in the United States.” Because journalists report on issues of relevance to RSF, the foundation has established a Visiting Journalist Fellowship to provide the time and resources needed to carry out an original project while interacting with resident visiting scholars who might help inform the development of the project. RSF will pay visiting journalists an honorarium of $8,000 per month for a full-time visit lasting two to three months. Applicants should be journalists with a minimum of 5-7 years of experience who write or report on social, economic, or political conditions in the United States.
Additionally, journalists who are interested in a full-year fellowship to complete a book or other major project that would necessitate a longer stay are eligible to apply to RSF’s Visiting Scholars program, with a deadline of June 28th, 2018 for the 2019-20 academic year.
Social Science Summer Institute for Journalists (July 11-13, 2018)
Application Deadline: March 30, 2018
The Russell Sage Foundation (RSF) will sponsor its second Social Science Summer Institute for Journalists on July 11-13, 2018. The institute, co-organized by Nicholas Lemann and Tali Woodward (Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism), will teach journalists how to locate the best available social science research on their topics quickly, how to identify and interact fruitfully with leading experts, and how to read academic publications for their journalistic relevance.
