Journalism in Asia Fellowship 2007 : The Wall Street Journal Asia
Deadline: 20 January 2007
The Wall Street Journal Asia, in association with New York University, is funding a fellowship program for two promising journalists from Asia to enroll in the masters business and economic reporting program at the NYU Department of Journalism. Each fellowship will begin in the fall of 2007 and will cover tuition expenses and fees for two of the three semesters of the program, as well as providing a stipend of US$20,000. Candidates for the fellowship must meet the eligibility requirements listed below and must submit the required application materials on time. Candidate submissions will be judged by a team of Journal editors working in conjunction with NYU professors. Finalists will be selected by March 2007. The winners will be announced by summer 2007.
Please also check the Fellowship Guidelines section below
- Candidates must have a minimum of two years of experience at a print or electronic publication.
- Candidates must be full-time journalists currently working in Asia.
- Candidates must have worked for at least one year at an English-language publication.
- Candidates should also be fluent in English and in an Asian language and possess a four-year undergraduate degree or a three-year undergraduate degree plus one year of graduate work.
*The judges may, at their discretion, consider applications from candidates who do not have work experience at an English-language publication. Such candidates must have demonstrated a high level of fluency in English. Such candidates may be required to make additional submissions and may be required to take a written and oral English test. These requirements are in addition to the GRE and TOEFL tests required of all candidates to test their fluency in English.
In order to be considered, all candidates must submit the following:
- A one-page resume, written in English, detailing work and educational experience.
- A maximum of three published articles written in English.
- An original 1,000-word essay written in English as described in more detail below.
The 1,000-word essay must be written entirely by the applicant without any assistance in composition or editing. It will be judged both as a piece of writing and as evidence of the candidate's aspirations, interests, abilities, and experience. It should be specific and detailed enough to communicate a concrete sense of your character and capability. The applicant must write out and sign the following statement: I did not receive assistance of any kind in the composition and editing of this essay.
The essay should address the following:
- What do you expect to get from--and what will you contribute to--the NYU program?
- What aspects of your experience are most relevant to your interest in business journalism?
- Fill us in on your background. Include information about your academic degree(s), intellectual interests, work and life experiences, and sources of inspiration.
- Explain how this background informs what you want to do as a journalist.
