The Knight Science Journalism Program at MIT is delighted to announce that applications for the 2023-2024 Science Journalism Fellowship Program will be accepted between November 15, 2022 and January 15, 2023. Applications for the in-person program, last accepted in 2019-2020, were closed due to the disruption of activities on MIT’s campus necessitated by the Covid-19 pandemic.
In August 2022, KSJ resumed its in-person fellowship program with five out of ten journalists who were selected during the last open application period in 2019-2020. The remaining five journalists of this cohort deferred their fellowship to the 2023-2024 academic year and therefore KSJ will choose five other journalists from new applications to complete the class.
During its two-year pause on in-person fellowships, KSJ launched remote, project fellowships that supported 39 U.S. journalists pursuing in-depth, independent reporting projects. With the resumption of the in-person, academic fellowships, KSJ discontinued its remote project fellowship program.
Since its founding in 1983, KSJ has hosted more than 350 fellows representing media outlets from The New York Times to Le Monde, from CNN to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and more.
For information on applying to KSJ’s academic fellowship program, please see the eligibility and application page. Journalists from all countries compete on an equal basis and are encouraged to apply.
