The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism is calling for applications from Mid-career journalists into its research fellowship program of either three or six months at Oxford University.
The Thomson Reuters Foundation Fellowship, founded in 1983, offers an opportunity for experienced journalists wishing to undertake research projects on a variety of subjects.
According to an information on the International Journalists’ Network, the fellowship program provides participating journalists from across the globe with an opportunity “to critically reflect upon their profession, to research a subject of their choice under the supervision of an academic specializing in that area, and to enjoy the breadth of academic, cultural and social life at the University of Oxford.”
Fellows are expected to complete an academic paper, with preference given to projects within the institute’s areas of focus: journalism and democracy; business of journalism; journalism practice; and media policy.
Also, fellows will be paid a “modest living allowance of £1,500 per month, for the three-month or six-month period their studies will last.
Applicants with at least five years of journalism experience and strong English skills are expected to submit a resume, personal statement, project proposal, references and work samples.
For any questions regarding the fellowship programme or application process, applicants should check the Frequently Asked Questions, FAQs.
Deadline for the application is January 31, 2017.
