The Fritt Ord Journalism Fellowship
The Fritt Ord Foundation offers a 6-month fellowship at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford, commencing annualy in January.
The Journalism Fellowship Programme at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism is aimed at Norwegian journalists with a minimum requirement of 5 years’ professional journalistic experience. Exceptional applicants who do not meet this requirement may be considered.
To be considered, applicants are asked to submit a proposal which gives details of the proposed research topic. The fellow will undertake a study project on a topic of their choice, leading to the completion of a 6,000-8,000 word paper at the end of their stay. Each fellow is assigned an academic advisor, usually an Oxford academic specialising in the Fritt Ord Journalism Fellow’s chosen area, for the purpose of this project.All Institute and University/College fees will be paid by the Fellowship, and the fellows will also receive their travel costs and a modest stipend to cover housing and living expenses directly from the Fritt Ord Foundation.
