Available Opportunities for Journalists at RSF

There is a long, rich history of journalists writing and reporting about topics related to the Russell Sage Foundation’s (RSF) mission to “improve the social and living conditions in the United States.” Because journalists report on issues of relevance to RSF, the foundation offers two programs for journalists: The Visiting Journalist Fellowship (2-3 month paid fellowship in residence) and the Social Science Summer Institute for Journalists (3-day summer workshop). Additionally, journalists who are interested in a full-year fellowship to complete a book or other major project that would necessitate a longer stay are eligible to apply to RSF’s Visiting Scholars program.

Application Deadlines:

The foundation offers Visiting Journalist Fellowships to provide journalists the time and resources needed to carry out an original project while interacting with resident visiting scholars who might help inform the development of the project. RSF will pay visiting journalists an honorarium of $8,000 per month for a full-time visit lasting two to three months. Applicants should be journalists with a minimum of 5-7 years of experience who write or report on social, economic, or political conditions in the United States.
