JSK Journalism Fellowship Stanford

JSK Fellows spend their time at Stanford University exploring solutions to the most urgent challenges facing journalism. They sit in on classes, attend events on campus, connect with experts in the university’s many research institutes and consult innovative thinkers and doers throughout Silicon Valley.

A JSK Fellow’s job during their 10 months at Stanford is to meet a few expectations of the fellowship program and to make the most of the opportunity. The most successful fellows take initiative and seek out people who can help them explore their questions and make connections, even before they arrive at Stanford.


U.S. applicants typically have at least seven years of full-time professional experience; international applicants typically have at least five years of experience. We will consider less experienced applicants who have outstanding achievements. We do not require applicants to have a college degree.

Professional background:

We consider applicants in these categories:

  • Journalists employed by a news organization or freelance journalists.
  • Journalism entrepreneurs and innovators.
  • Journalism business and management executives.

We do not accept applications from people working in public information or public relations jobs, for trade and house newsletters or magazines, for government agencies, or in academic positions. If you still have questions, email

We provide JSK Fellows with several financial benefits, including a stipend of $75,000. In addition to this stipend, we provide a supplement of $15,000 to $40,000 for fellows with children. We also cover the cost of Stanford tuition for fellows and spouses and pay for Stanford health care for fellows, spouses and children, which ranges from $20,000 to $30,000 per family. The total financial support to fellows ranges from $95,000 to $145,000.

We recently welcomed the 2017-18 JSK Fellows to Stanford. The application period for 2018-19 will be mid-October to early December 2017.
