For a strategic plan to increase the impact of the John S. Knight Fellowships for Professional Journalists
This one-time grant will determine how this longtime fellowship program can change to reflect the news industry’s digital transformation. Fellowships will be completed by spring 2008. It is expected that the fellowships will be restructured with an increased emphasis on innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership.
The fellowships will explore requiring action plans from program applicants, as well as ways to collaborate with the Knight Digital Media Center at U.C. Berkeley and University of Southern California, News University, the Knight Citizen News Network, J-Lab and other Knight digital media grantees and the International Center for Journalists, which recently restructured the Knight International Journalism Fellowships.
