CFR Edward R. Murrow Press Fellowship

"The Edward R. Murrow Press Fellowship offers an annual resident fellowship for nine months, typically from September through May, at the Council’s offices in New York. The program aims to help the Fellow increase competency in reporting and interpreting events abroad and allows a period of nearly a year for sustained analysis and writing, free from the daily pressures that characterize journalistic life. The program is now made possible by a grant from the CBS Foundation, and is intended to promote the quality of responsible and discerning journalism that exemplified the work of Edward R. Murrow during his life. Renamed in 1965 in his honor, the fellowship was originally established in 1949 with support from the Carnegie Corporation, as the Fellowship for American Foreign Correspondents." [1]
