Apply for business journalism fellowship by June 28

From the Rural Blog/Institute for Rural Journalism and Community Issues

The Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York is accepting applications for its Summer 2019 McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism. The deadline is June 28.
The fellowship grants provide up to $15,000 and editorial support each for experienced journalists to produce high-impact investigative or enterprise stories with an economic, financial, or business angle. The fellowship is non-residency.

“There’s no reason rural news media shouldn’t compete for such grants; in fact, they need them more than larger news organizations. All it takes is a good idea and one capable journalist,” said Al Cross, director of the Institute for Rural Journalism and Community Issues, publisher of The Rural Blog.

One example of a rural-related fellowship project is Mark Olalde’s 2018 series for Climate Home News about the coal industry’s failure to set aside enough money to reclaim Appalachian mines.
