Visiting Fellowship

Are you a high-level practitioner rooted in the field of journalism or academia? The Reuters Institute accepts a small number of Visiting Fellowships from senior practitioners working in journalism, news media or academic fields closely related to our own research projects.

Visiting Fellowships are non-salaried, visiting positions designed to foster close links with people working within other organisations, whose work aligns closely with the aims and ambitions of the Reuters Institute.

Academic Visiting Fellows hold substantive appointments on the faculty of other academic or research institutions. These are generally scholars on grants from national research academies and foundations or sabbaticals from their home institution. Visiting Fellows from the journalism industry are typically on leave from their employer.

The term of a Visiting Fellowship is for one to three academic terms and requires an affiliation fee that provides access to university facilities and services, covers costs for desk space and administrative support. Visiting Fellowships are reviewed by the Reuters Institute’s Director of Research and approved by our Editorial Committee, which meets three times a year.
