JSK 10th Alumni Reunion & Conference this July

Dear JSK Fellowships Alumni,

We are delighted to welcome you back to the Stanford campus this July for the 10th John S. Knight Fellowships Alumni Reunion & Conference!

Mark your calendar now: The dates are July 12-15, 2023.

This 10th reunion feels even more special, as we were not able to come together in person during the worst of the pandemic, when we originally planned to hold the reunion.

The campus is just as beautiful as when you were here – and there’s something magical about having fellows back at Stanford in person from across the years and across the miles. More than 1,000 people from more than 80 countries have been journalism fellows at Stanford since that first Class of 1967. We hope that you will consider attending – and encourage your fellow classmates to attend as well. (There will be a prize for the class with the most attendees!)

The reunion and conference will feature discussions on current issues in journalism, opportunities for JSK alumni to talk about their work in journalism, and of course, plenty of time to socialize and reconnect over meals and free time.

Look for more information about the JSK 10th Reunion and Conference in our monthly JSK Connect alumni newsletters. Hope to see you here!
