The Knight Foundation is a major supporter of the Knight-Wallace Fellowships and the Livingston Awards. Thanks to the foundation’s support, six speciality fellowships have been established in business, education, law, medicine, transportation, environmental and international reporting. The Knight Foundation’s contributions have also supported fellowships for international journalists to study at the University of Michigan.
Since 2014, the Knight Foundation has provided more than $500,000 in matching grants to the Livingston Awards to support expanded digital media efforts and outreach events for award winners. The funding is matched by the University of Michigan and provides time for the prestigious awards to build a permanent endowment.
The Knight Foundation advances journalism in the digital age and invests in the vitality of communities where the Knight brothers owned newspapers. The Knight Foundation focuses on projects that promote informed and engaged communities and lead to transformational change.
