Supporting Journalism Leaders

Based at Stanford University in Northern California, the John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships supports diverse journalists from around the world who are creating solutions to journalism’s most urgent problems.

We focus on helping these journalism leaders succeed as effective change agents, improving the access to information people need to create and sustain democratic communities.
