A JSK Fellowship is a life-changing experience. Each year, JSK select up to 20 fellows from around the world and bring them together for 10 months at Stanford University, in the heart of Silicon Valley. Immersed in the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit of this region, they are inspired to let go of old assumptions and learn new ways of thinking and working.
JSK Fellows learn from, and collaborate with, each other. Diversity of background, experience and viewpoints is a fundamental value of our program. We enthusiastically include spouses, partners and families in fellowship life.
Some fellows explore ideas that involve technology, others work on challenges that focus on organizational change and innovation. We are not a program focused on creating products, companies or organizations, though some fellows have ended up doing those things. We also are not a reporting fellowship.
U.S. applicants for a JSK Fellowship ideally have at least seven years of full-time professional experience; international applicants ideally have at least five years. But we also consider less experienced applicants with outstanding achievements.
No college degree is required.
We consider applicants who fall into one or more of these categories:
- Journalists employed by a news organization or journalism freelancers
- Journalism entrepreneurs and innovators
- Journalism business and management executives
The deadline for applying is December 1, 2016.
