Wallace House is now returning the in-person Knight-Wallace Fellowship for the 2022-2023 academic year.

Knight-Wallace Fellowships offer accomplished journalists a unique opportunity: study and collaborative learning at the University of Michigan to deepen knowledge, develop new ideas as well as address challenges facing the journalism industry.

 Areas of focus include sharpening professional skills, addressing a challenge facing your newsroom, digging into data and research for a long-term reporting project as well as developing a journalism venture.

Knight-Wallace Fellowship selects up to 20 Fellows for this fellowship. The program will include:

  • Also, workshops to sharpen professional skills and leadership ability
  • In addition, a $75,000 stipend is distributed monthly from August through April for living expenses. Also, if the Fellow’s employer does not contribute to insurance coverage, health insurance is provided.
  • Furthermore, spouses and partners are invited to partake in fellowship activities and can audit university courses as well.
