Fellowships of $8,000 per month to USA journalists for research and reporting on current issues in the social and political arena, including immigration reform, racial tensions, and educational inequalities. Applicants are expected to work with visiting scholars conducting research projects in these areas.
In addition to the cash stipend, fellows are provided with an office at the Foundation, computers and software, library access and limited research assistance. Applicants who reside outside of the greater New York City area may be provided with a partially-subsidized apartment near the foundation, if available.
Journalists most likely to benefit from a stay at the Foundation are (a) those who are beginning a large project for which intensive study of the relevant social science research at RSF would be beneficial, or (b) those who have already completed most of their field research, are ready to place it in context, and need to devote intensive time to writing.
