O’Brien Fellowship in Public Service Journalism

O’Brien Fellowship in Public Service Journalism

Deadline: 21 January 2022
Open to: staff-employed or independent journalists residing in the United States or its territories
Benefits: a stipend of $70,000 for nine months


O’Brien Fellows complete an in-depth reporting project of their choosing on a topic of state, regional, national or international interest over two academic semesters. See the Our Work section of their website for examples of the journalism produced by past fellows.

In the past, most Fellows have worked from a home base in the O’Brien newsroom in the Diederich College of Communication at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We accept both remote and residential applications, but give extra weight in the selection process to applicants ready to take up residency in Milwaukee.

Mentor and team with top Marquette journalism students in the pursuit of an investigative or explanatory journalism project.



A stipend of $70,000 for nine months for your salary, paid to your sponsoring organization, or directly to the fellow in the case of independent journalists.
