Have you worked at least one year in Asia at an English-language publication? And you’re fluent in English and an Asian language? AND you’re looking for an adventure in New York?
Check out the Wall Street Journal Asia Fellowship at New York University. The deadline to apply is March 21.
Entering its ninth year, the Fellowship has enabled a number of working journalists in Asia to come to New York to study journalism at a top research university. The BER program features a unique interdisciplinary curriculum of both journalism and MBA courses. With a low 5:1 student-to-faculty ratio, the program provides intellectual rigor as well as hands-on mentoring for 15 hand-picked students.
The Fellowship covers tuition and fees for two of the three semesters of the program, as well as a stipend of US$22,000 to cover travel to New York, living expenses, at least one trip home, as well as incidental costs such as textbooks. Previous fellows have gone on to staff positions at the Journal and other major news organizations in the U.S. and Asia.
