Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute offering fellowships for 2016-17; deadline to apply Feb. 15

The Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute is accepting applications for its 2016-2017 RJI Fellows. Residential fellows spend eight months on the University of Missouri campus. Nonresidential fellows explore their ideas from their home or office, with an occasional visit to campus. The institutional fellowship allows an individual to remain at their post at a news organization or other institution while developing an idea. Areas of particular interest include: projects focused on inclusivity and engaging communities; applied research that helps RJI better understand the business and practice of journalism; new techniques, tools and technologies; prototypes that need further development and market testing; and ideas for new revenue streams or business models that many news organizations could adopt.

Residential fellows receive an $80,000 stipend and a $10,000 one-time housing or relocation allowance. Nonresidential fellows receive a $20,000 stipend, plus research and travel support. The institutional fellowship stipend—$20,000—is paid to the company or institution and can be used for salary relief or for another purpose to best ensure the success of the fellowship project. RJI Fellowships are open to U.S. citizens and foreign journalists. The deadline to apply is Feb. 15. For more information or to apply, click here.
