Wall Street Journal Asia Fellowship at NYU

28 March 2010
Wall Street Journal Asia Fellowship at NYU
Applications for the fellowship have closed, but for those applying for the NYU’s own scholarship applications filed through May 1 will be considered on a space-available basis. (Sorry, we missed this announcement.)

What is the fellowship?

It’s a program funded by The Wall Street Journal, in association with New York University, for one or two promising journalists from Asia to enroll in the three-semester masters program in business and economic reporting at the NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute.

The intensive sixteen-month program, which has graduated a number of Journal and Dow Jones Newswires reporters in recent years, features a unique interdisciplinary curriculum of both journalism and MBA courses and a remarkably low 4:1 student-to-faculty ratio, providing both intellectual rigor as well as hands-on mentoring for a dozen hand-picked students.

Candidate submissions will be judged by a team of Journal editors working in conjunction with NYU professors.

What is included in the fellowship?

The Fellowship covers tuition expenses and fees for two of the three semesters of the program, as well as providing a stipend of US$22,000. The Fellowship covers travel to New York as well as some incidental costs, such as textbooks. Previous fellows have reported that this adequately covers living expenses and at least one trip home.
