For Employers

Supporting your employee’s application for a Knight-Wallace Fellowship might be one of the smartest moves your company makes. We understand the concerns about lending out one of your most valuable players for a year, but what you get in return is priceless: free employee development, leadership preparation, specialty training.

We encourage employers to work with applicants to help determine a course of study that would benefit not only the individual, but also their news organization as a whole. It is our aim to return to you a professional who is newly impassioned and invigorated by this year away, a journalist with broader perspective, fresher ideas and stronger leadership skills.
