The Knight Fellowships offers journalists "[A] year to study and research, removed from the dailiness of newsroom deadline pressures, in the company of other accomplished journalists at Stanford ... A year in which you can pursue those fascinating threads of knowledge that get ignored when you're working on tomorrow's story. A year to hone your professional intellect for the rest of your career. A year to dive into the challenges and opportunities of 21st century journalism."
Application deadline for next year is Dec. 15. Go to http://knight.stanford.edu for information.
