University of Oxford/Reuters Institute Journalism Fellowship Program 2024

Are you a mid-career journalist with a passion for exploring journalism in depth? If so, the Journalist Fellowship Programme at the Reuters Institute might be the perfect opportunity for you. This programme is one of the most prestigious in the world and offers a chance for practising journalists to take a break from their day jobs and gain a deeper understanding of journalism.


Most Journalist Fellows are fully funded, and they receive a stipend to cover living and travel expenses. During your time at Oxford, you’ll have the chance to conduct personal research and attend seminars, networking events, and discussions with your peers. You’ll work on a project that will have a direct impact on your career, your newsroom, and the wider media industry. This is an excellent opportunity for working journalists and editors who want to return to journalism after spending a few months with us.

To be considered for the fellowship, you must have a minimum of five years of journalistic experience, or demonstrate an equivalent level of expertise. Freelancers are welcome to apply, but we do not accept applications from those working in public affairs, public relations, or corporate communications. Journalists from all over the world are welcome to apply, including Europe, Africa, the Asia-Pacific region, North America, and Latin America.

If you’re interested in applying, there are a few documents you’ll need to prepare, including a one-page project statement, a 150-word summary of your proposed project idea, a one-page motivation statement, a two-page CV, and two letters of reference. Please visit the University of Oxford’s website to learn more about the application process and submit your application before the deadline on February 19, 2024.
