Knight-Wallace Fellowships - Livingston Awards

Committed to fostering excellence in journalism, Wallace House at the University of Michigan  is home to the Knight-Wallace Fellowships and the Livingston Awards, two programs that recognize exceptional journalists for their work, leadership and potential.

A gift from the legendary newsman Mike Wallace and his wife, Mary, Wallace House serves as the program offices and a resource for community, knowledge-sharing and inspiration for Fellows and those affiliated with the two programs.

Located a few blocks from the University of Michigan campus, Wallace House is home away from home for the Knight-Wallace Fellows. It is a place for the fellowship seminars, workshops, dinners and for Fellows to spend time together.

Knight-Wallace Fellowships
A Knight-Wallace Fellowship recognizes exceptional journalists for their work, leadership and potential with a unique opportunity: an academic year of study, developing new perspectives and networks, and achieving both professional and personal growth at the University of Michigan, one of the world’s finest universities.

For the small group of journalism professionals from the U.S. and abroad selected for a Knight-Wallace Fellowship, the result is a life-changing experience.
  • Personalized study plans and access to U-M courses allow you to pursue your own path.
  • Regular seminars and visiting speakers bring the best from journalism and academia to you.
  • Workshops for fellows provide opportunities to advance your writing, entrepreneurial and multimedia knowledge and skills.
  • International travel is a core component of the experience.
  • Stipends allow our fellows (and their families/partners) to make the most of a once-in-a-lifetime sabbatical opportunity.
Eligibility: Applicants must be full-time journalists, with a minimum five years professional experience, whose work appears regularly as an employee or freelancer. Print/digital, broadcast, photo, documentary and graphic/visualization journalists are eligible to apply. There are no academic prerequisites.

Terms: All fellows must agree not to work, either in their current job of other paid assignments, maintain residency in Ann Arbor for the duration of the fellowship and attend all program seminars and events. Applicants working in a newsroom are encouraged to obtain employer consent granting a leave of absence with the understanding that, upon completion of the fellowship and where applicable, the fellow will return to their place of employment.

Livingston Awards
The Livingston Awards for Young Journalists honor outstanding achievement by professionals under the age of 35 in local, national and international reporting.

The largest all-media, general reporting prize in American journalism, the Livingston Awards judge print, broadcast and online journalism against one another, a practice of increasing interest as technology blurs the traditional distinctions between the branches of journalism.

Each year three prizes of $10,000 are presented by the judging panel at a New York luncheon. Leading media figures and the winners’ families and colleagues attend to honor the winners. By recognizing the best young talent early in their careers, the Livingston Awards seeks to support the work of young journalists, create modern role models for the next generation of news consumers and advance excellence in journalism.

Rules: Prizes of $10,000 will be presented in three categories: local, national and international reporting. There is no entry fee.
