Applications open for The McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism

Got a great idea for a high-impact story that ‘Follows the Money’, but few resources to get it done? If so, check out The McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism, an initiative of the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY.

The McGraw Fellowship provides up to $15,000 and editorial support for experienced journalists to produce deeply-reported investigative or enterprise stories on critical economic, financial and business topics. Journalists of color and journalists from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Previous McGraw Fellows have explored a wide variety of topics — and you don’t need to be a business reporter to apply. Many have been generalists, or cover areas such as health care, inequality or the environment. 

The Fellowship is open to both freelance and staff journalists in all forms of media with at least five years’ professional experience. The deadline for Spring 2022 Fellowship applications is March 31, 2022; Fall 2022 applications will be due Sept. 30, 2022. For further information, go to or contact us at
