The Journalist Fellowship Programme at the Reuters Institute is one of the world’s leading schemes for practising, mid-career journalists to take some time out from their day jobs to explore journalism in depth. The majority of our Journalist Fellows are fully-funded and they also receive a stipend to cover living and travel costs.

Fellowships

Through personal research, seminars, networking events and discussions with your peers, you will further your understanding of journalism, the news industry and your place in it. While you are in Oxford, you will work on a project that will be of direct impact to you, your career, your newsroom and the wider media industry, bringing in what you learn during your time in the fellowship. This is a programme for working journalists and editors who will return to journalism after spending a few months with us. 

We accept around 30 Journalist Fellows from around the world each year, each of whom bring fascinating insights and a wealth of experience to the institute. Here’s what is unique about our programme:

  • You will be embedded in a cutting-edge institution that is shaping key media debates. The Reuters Institute produces factsheets and reports on the main challenges of the industry.
  • You will be part of an institution with a global outlook. Our Journalist Fellows come from all over the world. They share ideas and experiences of working in different countries and different mediums.
  • You will be part of one of the world’s greatest universities. Oxford offers unrivalled study facilities, leading research centres, extensive learning support and a global reputation.
  • You will be just one hour from London by train, providing convenient access to some of the world’s leading news publishers like The Guardian, the Financial Times and the BBC.

How do I apply?

The application centre for the 2021/2022 fellowship cohorts (starting in October 2021, January 2022 and April 2022) is now open.

The final deadline for applications is 8 February 2021 (23:59 UK time). Successful applicants for October 2021 will hear from us by 12 April 2021.

When applying, you need to upload:

  • A one-page personal statement about why you want to join this programme, and how you will apply your research project when you return to work.
  • A project proposal that would benefit the news industry in your country or company. The proposal should be between 800-1200 words, and should outline the questions you hope to answer and how you propose to answer them during your time with us.
  • Two professional references. 
  • A CV/resume that includes your current job title and company (with links to their site), career history, and education history.
