Thirteen U.S. journalists have been awarded John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships to pursue proposals for journalism innovation at Stanford during the 2012-13 academic year.
They join eight International Knight Fellows, who were announced earlier.
The Knight Fellowships supports innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership in journalism by supporting experienced, committed journalists with ideas for improving their craft and the news industry. The proposals by the Fellows include ones exploring ways to build an engaged online community, revenue-generating journalism models combining advertising and social media, business models for community news, and templates to allow reporters to create interactive maps and 3-D graphics.
During their stay at Stanford, the Knight Fellows also pursue independent courses of study and participate in special seminars. The 2012-13 program marks the 47th year that Stanford has offered journalism fellowships.
