Fellowships Application

Thank you for your interest in CFR’s Edward R. Murrow Press Fellowship Program.

The program is only open to candidates who have covered international news as a working journalist for print, broadcast, or online media widely available in the United States and who hold distinguished credentials in the field of journalism. Eligible applicants are limited to those who are authorized to work in the United States and who will continue to be authorized for the duration of the fellowship. CFR does not sponsor for visas.

The duration of the fellowship is nine months, preferably beginning in September. The program awards a stipend of $65,000 as well as a modest travel grant. The fellow is considered an independent contractor rather than an employee of CFR, and is not eligible for employment benefits, including health insurance.
