Our Western Journalism and Media Fellowships provide opportunities for journalists working in all kinds of media — newspapers, magazines, radio, television, online, multimedia, video, film, data visualization, mapping, and books — to visit Stanford and interact with researchers, scholars, and students, while developing or working on a project of their own designs to spur new coverage and understanding of the American West.
The length of residence varies, typically from one to two weeks, although longer stays may be possible, particularly for projects that intersect with ongoing research at the Center and Stanford, that address significant challenges facing the American West, and that explore promising new possibilities for journalism and the media in the region. Travel and accommodation costs are covered, and a modest honorarium is offered.
Short letters of inquiry — one to two pages — are welcome. Please address inquiries to:
