WHAT PAST FELLOWS SAY
- Michelle Park, a 2013 Strictly Financials fellow and finance reporter at Crain’s Cleveland Business, said, “I gained a re-energized belief in what I do and what my job can do for my community, if only I’ll look and dig where others might not. I left Strictly Financials inspired by my ability to dig more intelligently into numbers that matter.”
- Tom Herman, a 2011 Business Journalism Professors fellow and adjunct instructor at Columbia Journalism School, said,“Your seminar was absolutely superb. The professors were excellent, and I learned a tremendous amount from my fellow students, too.”
Deadline is 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time Nov. 1, 2013. For information on the two seminars, including how to apply online, go to the call for fellows for Strictly Financials or Business Journalism Professors seminars.
