McGraw Center for Business Journalism seeks fellowship applications

Applications are now open for the Fall 2023 McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism. If you have a great idea for a high-impact story that “Follows the Money” but need funds to get it done, we’d love to hear from you.

The McGraw Fellowships, an initiative of the Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY, provide experienced journalists with a grant up to $15,000 and the editorial support needed to produce in-depth enterprise and investigative stories on key issues related to the global economy, business or finance. We accept applications twice a year, in spring and fall. Both freelance and staff journalists in all forms of media with at least five years’ professional experience are eligible. Journalists from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.

The upcoming deadline to apply is October 6, 2023

Previous McGraw Fellows have explored a wide variety of topics — and you don’t need to be a business reporter to apply. Many have been generalists, or follow the environment, health care, education or other beats. Others focus on economic justice or corporate accountability. Here are some examples of their work:

The McGraw Center for Business Journalism was established at the Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY in 2014 by the family of the late Harold W. McGraw, Jr., former chairman and CEO of McGraw-Hill and long-time publisher of BusinessWeek magazine. The Center is dedicated to enhancing the depth and quality of business and economic news coverage through training, student scholarships and support for veteran journalists.

The Newmark Graduate School of Journalism in midtown Manhattan is the only publicly supported graduate journalism school in the Northeast. Led by Dean Graciela Mochkofsky, the School offers three 16 month Master’s degree programs: an M.A. in Journalism, Spanish Language Journalism, or Social Journalism.
