Edward R. Murrow Press Fellowship
The fellowship was established in 1949 with support from the Carnegie Corporation. In 1965, it was renamed in honor of Edward R. Murrow with support from the CBS Foundation and the Ford Foundation. A Ford Foundation Challenge Grant was launched in September 2009 bringing in additional funding from Time Warner, Inc. and the Carnegie Corporation of New York. The fellowship offers journalists who cover international affairs the rare opportunity to engage in sustained analysis and writing, free from the daily pressures that characterize journalistic life. The program's goal is to promote the quality of responsible and discerning journalism that exemplified the work of Edward R. Murrow during his life.
