NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Wall Street Journal, in association with New York University, is now accepting applications for the 2010 Wall Street Journal Asia Fellowship. The Fellowship provides promising journalists from Asia with the opportunity to participate in the three-semester masters program in the Business & Economic Reporting program at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute.
The deadline is Feb. 8, 2010.
Candidates must have at least one year’s experience working in Asia at an English-language publication and be fluent in English and at least one Asian language. A team of Journal editors working in conjunction with NYU professors will select one or more fellows for the program.
Interested applicants should visit http://wsjfellowship.com/the-fellowship/ for details.
Entering its seventh year, the Fellowship has enabled a number of working journalists in Asia to come to New York to study journalism at a top research university. The BER program features a unique interdisciplinary curriculum of both journalism and MBA courses. With a low 4:1 student-to-faculty ratio, the program provides intellectual rigor as well as hands-on mentoring for 15 hand-picked students.
The Fellowship covers tuition and fees for two of the three semesters of the program, as well as a stipend of US$22,000 to cover travel to New York, living expenses, at least one trip home, as well as incidental costs such as textbooks. Previous fellows have gone on to staff positions at the Journal and other major news organizations in the U.S. and Asia.
