JSK Fellows spend their time at Stanford University exploring solutions to the most urgent challenges facing journalism. They sit in on classes, attend events on campus, connect with experts in the university’s many research institutes and consult innovative thinkers and doers throughout Silicon Valley.
A JSK Fellow’s job during their 10 months at Stanford is to meet a few expectations of the fellowship program and to make the most of the opportunity. The most successful fellows take initiative and seek out people who can help them explore their questions and make connections, even before they arrive at Stanford.
Benefits of a Fellowship
We provide JSK Fellows with several financial benefits, including a stipend of $85,000. In addition to this stipend, we provide an additional supplement for fellows with children. We also cover the cost of Stanford tuition and Stanford health care for fellows, spouses and children. We also help fellows find housing.
