If you are a print, broadcast or online journalist with five or more years of experience (here or abroad), you are eligible to become a Kiplinger Fellow.
If you participated in the Kiplinger Fellowship program prior to 2011 (when it changed its focus to social media and digital tools), you may apply.
Freelance work for established media organizations can definitely be applied to the years of work requirement.
All of the workshop sessions are provided at no charge. In addition, we provide lodging and provide several meals. Limited travel stipends are available to international fellows. U.S. Fellows will be asked to pay their transportation to and from Ohio.
You are still eligible to apply for the fellowship. However, please know that we give weight to applicants who are currently employed as journalists and can apply what they learn in the fellowship to their work.
Yes, so applicants need to have a command of spoken and written English to benefit from the fellowship. We will not have translators.
Yes. Your three work samples must be in English as well. If your work as a journalist requires that you write in another language other than English, you must provide originals and English translations.
Yes. Please know that all sessions of the fellowship program will be conducted in English, and application materials must be in English.
By all means. We want to design a fellowship that best fits your needs. The online application includes an area for you to specify what you’d like to learn.
You will receive additional information in January about the Kiplinger Fellowship with more details about logistics.

Workshops such as the Kiplinger’s Social Media Summits are open to journalists and communications professionals. No application is needed but seats are limited. Kip workshops typically sell out, so we encourage you to register early.
Costs vary by program. Thanks to generous sponsorship by the Kiplinger Foundation, registration costs are surprisingly affordable.
Absolutely. We love to work with others to provide high-caliber training for journalists, students and educators. Please contact Kevin Smith, executive director, to discuss the possibilities: email@example.com or (740) 566-0144
