There are big changes afoot in the Knight Fellowships program at Stanford University:
Beginning with the 2009-10 fellowship year, the program will put a new emphasis on journalistic innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership.
These are among the premier journalism fellowships in the U.S., and the changes — among other things, non-traditional journalists will have a better shot at the program — could have a positive impact on journalism over time. (Note: I was on the task force that helped Stanford re-evaluate the fellowships.)
Take a look, and consider applying.
