The Tarbell Fellowship is a one-year programme for early-career journalists intent on improving the world.
The fellowship represents a unique opportunity to do great journalism, covering topics that could have a major impact on the lives of billions, such as global poverty and existential risks.
Fellows receive a stipend of up to $50,000 to support placements at major publications and independent freelance reporting. The programme incorporates expert speakers, feedback & mentorship from experienced journalists and a two-week journalism summit in Oxford. Upon graduation, they expect fellows to bring their impact-focused perspective to major newsrooms and publications around the globe.
The 2023 Tarbell Fellowship will run from March 1st 2023 - February 29th 2024. Applications close on October 9th, 2022 at 11:59 PM Anywhere on Earth.
How it works
Challenging. Fellows will spend the year building skills and a strong portfolio to accelerate their journalism careers.
As the fellowship is not associated with a specific news outlet, fellows must work hard to gain experience. Stipends may be used to support freelancing, placements in major newsrooms, or the production of other forms of journalism.
Full-time. The fellowship is a full-time commitment. Journalism is a highly competitive industry, and we expect fellows to be completely focused on succeeding.
Remote. The fellowship is entirely remote. This enables them to support rising journalism talent from around the globe.
However, they strongly encourage fellows to move to international journalism hubs for the duration of this fellowship. They expect this to accelerate fellows’ careers and will give preferential treatment to those willing to do this.
