Accredited journalism programs may apply for a grant that will place visiting business journalism professors at selected universities across the country. The next availability is for the January 2016 semester.
The grant of up to $50,000 per school is funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation with the goal of helping to launch business journalism programs at campuses around the United States.
The first four schools hosted a visiting professor in the spring 2012 semester. Three more universities hosted professors in 2013, and two more are hosting professors in 2014. A single school will receive a professor each in 2015 and 2016.
The professors, high-level business journalists, teach two business journalism courses each during their semester in residence. The Reynolds Foundation grant covers most salary and program expenses as well as provides funding for practicing business journalists to visit the campus during the semester.
Accredited journalism programs that want to host a visiting professor in Spring 2016 must apply by Feb. 18, 2015. For details, go to How to Apply: Journalism Programs.
Individuals who wish to apply to be a visiting professor may submit an application at any time. For details, go to How to Apply: Visiting Professorships.
