Durham University Sir Harry Evans Global Fellowship 2025 (Fully funded)

Durham University Sir Harry Evans Global Fellowship 2025 (Fully funded)

The Sir Harry Evans Global Fellowship provides an unrivalled opportunity for an exceptional early career journalist: a nine-month fellowship with Durham University and Reuters to undertake an investigative project. The Fellow will be mentored by top Reuters editors while having access to Durham’s academics and research resources and will be given the opportunity to develop rigorous, fact-based research and reporting skills.

The Fellow will pursue the project from inside a Reuters newsroom  in London, New York, or Toronto with the additional support of colleagues in Durham’s Institute of Advanced Studies. The Fellow will deliver a public seminar at the IAS, sharing their learnings from the Fellowship and supporting the understanding of journalism at the University. The inaugural Sir Harry Evans Fellow, Waylon Cunningham, was part of a Reuters investigative team which won a 2024 Pulitzer Prize in national reporting.
