Applications are now open for the Spring 2023 McGraw Fellowships. The Fellowships, awarded twice a year, provide experienced journalists with the funds and editorial support needed to produce investigative and enterprise stories on critical economic, financial and business issues. Both freelance and staff journalists in all forms of media with at least five years’ professional experience are eligible. Journalists of color and those from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.

The upcoming deadline to apply for Spring Fellowships is March 31, 2023.

In addition to providing funding and editorial support for veteran journalists, the Center offers training and scholarships for young reporters entering the field.
