OPPORTUNITIES FOR JOURNALISTS

Visiting Journalist Fellowship

Application Deadline: May 1, 2019
for visits between September and November 2019
or April and June 2020

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.” The foundation offers Visiting Journalist Fellowships to provide the time and resources needed to carry out an original project on issues of relevance to RSF.

The fellowship is an opportunity for journalists to carry out their work while interacting with resident visiting scholars who might help inform the development of these projects.

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.

Social Science Summer Institute for Journalists
(July 17-19, 2019)

NEW APPLICATION DEADLINE: April 15, 2019

The Russell Sage Foundation (RSF) will sponsor its third Social Science Summer Institute for Journalists on July 17-19, 2019 at its offices in New York City.

The institute, co-organized by Nicholas Lemann (Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism) and Tali Woodward (The Trace), 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.

The program will involve both instructional and application-oriented sessions in the afternoon. Guest speakers from academia and the industry will share their experiences and tips, and will point participants toward current topics where interaction with social science may be useful.
