The Kiplinger Fellowship
Since 1973, journalists have competed for prestigious Kiplinger Fellowships. In recent years, hundreds of journalists from around the world have applied annually for 20 to 25 slots – positioning the Kiplinger Fellowship among a handful of nationally prominent journalism fellowships.
The 2022 fellowship will be held on Ohio University's Athens campus April 18-22 and focus on covering climate change. Professional speakers who represent some of the top leaders in journalism and climate sciences will address the 19 fellows.
About the Kiplinger Fellowship
Kiplinger Fellows typically spend a week in April on Ohio University’s main campus in Athens, where they can engage and learn from the top trainers and leading experts in the field. The highly coveted fellowships provide lodging, most meals and free training – thanks to the generosity of the Kiplinger Foundation and Kiplinger family.
Kiplinger Fellows have been chosen from some of the most influential newsrooms across the United States and around the globe. Journalists have been selected from the Associated Press, BBC, CBS News, Chicago Tribune, CNN, Los Angeles Times, National Public Radio, NBC News, New York Times, PBS Newshour, Slate, USA Today, Univision, Washington Post and dozens of other news organizations. International journalists have traveled to Ohio State from Afghanistan, China, Colombia, Great Britain, Greece, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Panama, the Philippines, Spain, Sweden, Ukraine and other nations.
