The Reuters Institute, based at the University of Oxford, offers a limited number of Journalist Fellowships each year. Do you have what it takes to be a hard-hitting journalist and vanguard for truth?
The fully-funded Fellowships are aimed at practicing journalists from all over the world, to enable them to research a topic of their choice, related to their work and the broader media industry, before returning to newsrooms.
Furthermore, the Fellowships offer an opportunity to network with a global group of journalists, spend time away from the daily pressure of deadlines, and examine the key issues facing the industry, with input from leading experts and practitioners.
You do not need to specify which particular source of funding you are applying for – we will allocate the one most suitable for you based on your country of origin and research proposal.
- Thomson Reuters Foundation Fellowships
- Anglo American Journalist Fellowship
- Google Digital News Journalist Fellowship
- Mona Megalli Fellowship

- David Levy Fellowship for International Dialogue
Application deadline: February 14, 2022
Benefits of the Oxford / Reuters Institute Fellowships
Most Journalist Fellowships are fully-funded and cover living costs and accommodation. There are some opportunities for self-funded candidates. Some Fellowships are open only to candidates who are employees of the sponsoring organization.
For the Oxford / Reuters Institute Journalism Fellowship, the event can last one, two, or three terms.
