Year-Long Investigative Reporting Fellowships Announced
UC Berkeley’s Investigative Reporting Program at the Graduate School of Journalism is accepting entries for its eighth annual competition for year-long fellowships in investigative reporting. The fellowships are open to all working investigative journalists. Graduates from UC Berkeley’s master’s program in journalism are encouraged to apply.
Fellows will receive an annual salary of $54,336 and be eligible for full UC benefits. Fellows will also be provided with office space, basic expenses and up to $10,000 in funds for approved travel.
This year’s fellowships to the Investigative Reporting Program (IRP) are made possible by a core grant from the Sandler Foundation, matching grants from Scott and Jennifer Fearon and Margaret and Will Hearst, along with donations from The Financial Times, Peter Wiley and Valerie Barth.
Applications are due no later than midnight on Monday, May 19th. Up to three fellows will be selected in June. Occasionally, the IRP awards special project support in lieu of a fellowship in-residence. This is a one-year academic appointment expected to begin on August 29, 2014.
