Newmark J-School supports journalists at every stage of their careers. We offer a range of learning opportunities on campus and through grant programs, and a few at top news outlets that are exclusive to our graduates.
The Ravitch Fiscal Reporting Fellowships award up to $15,000 to reporters seeking to dig deeply into budgets, debt, pensions and other post-employment obligations, tax policy and how fiscal stress changes government priorities. Contact: Program Director Greg David
The McGraw Fellowships, part of The McGraw Center for Business Journalism, provide stipends of up to $15,000 for ambitious reporting on U.S business and the global economy. This helped freelancer Nathan Halverson of the Center for Investigative Reporting produce a two-part PBS NewsHour series on the Chinese acquisition of U.S. pork producer Smithfield Foods, which won a 2015 Emmy Award.

Reporting the U.S. Workplace is an all-expense-paid program that brings together reporters from across the country for a two-day workshop at the Newmark J-School to learn from top journalists and experts about crucial and current workplace issues. It is funded by a generous donation to the Sidney Hillman Foundation from entrepreneur Jesse C. Crawford. Contact: Alexandra Lescaze at email@example.com or (646) 448-6413.
