Applications open for the Reuters Institute Journalist Fellowship Programme. The Fellowships offer mid-career journalists the opportunity to reflect on the industry and carry out media-based research while being part of the University of Oxford, studying with an international cohort of journalists and academics.
The programme comprises of 3 fellowships:
