About the Organization

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) enables a global network of journalists to provide the trustworthy news essential to free and strong societies – vital work that strengthens democratic ideals and spurs change. We serve more than 160,000 journalists around the world, helping them cover the most critical issues of today, innovate to deeply connect with communities, and build news organizations that thrive.

About the Fellowship

The International Center for Journalists is excited to open applications for the 2024 ICFJ Knight Fellowships, marking the fellowship’s 30th year of fostering innovative journalism practices across the globe. The fellowships are made possible by the longtime support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

The one-year fellowship program nurtures groundbreaking media projects that address challenges in the fellows’ home regions and helps share those innovations internationally. In 2024, the ICFJ Knight Fellows will include one or two U.S.-based fellows to focus on the intersection of international and U.S. information needs.

Themes that we encourage fellows to focus on include – but are not limited to – this list. Feel free to surprise us with your innovative proposals!

  • How AI can serve journalism
  • Creating communities and resources for journalists in exile
  • Serving the information needs of diaspora communities in the United States
  • Combating disinformation, especially around elections
  • Covering climate change innovatively
  • Creating networks of shared services or infrastructure to help independent journalism thrive


The selected fellow will receive funding support, mentorship, and access to a network of media professionals. ICFJ also offers opportunities for training and international exposure.

Duration: One Year


We invite applications from established journalists with a track record of impactful journalistic work. This is not a U.S.-based residential fellowship. Fellows will be based in their home countries, except for exiled journalists. The program is particularly interested in projects that leverage innovative approaches and technologies to address specific issues in the local media landscape.


Fellows will be provided with a monthly honorarium and professional expenses so they make their fellowship projects their primary focus. Work outside the fellowship that relates to or feeds into the project is allowed.


  • Journalists with at least three years of professional experience.
  • A track record of impactful journalistic work.
