Description

The Economist Group is the leading source of analysis on international business and world affairs. We deliver our information through a range of formats, from newspapers and magazines to conferences and electronic services. What ties us together is the objectivity of our opinion, the originality of our insight and our advocacy of economic and political freedom around the world.

The Economist is seeking applicants for two paid fellowships in America. Each fellow will spend six months as a journalist working with our New York and Washington bureaus, writing articles about politics and policy in the United States. Previous experience in journalism is not necessary, but applicants should possess a love of writing, inquiry and debate.

To apply, applicants should submit an original unpublished article of up to 600 words suitable for publication in The Economist’s United States section, along with an updated resume.  Of these, the most important is the original article, which should demonstrate analytical rigour and wit. We will read your article blind without considering your CV to create a shortlist of candidates.

The deadline for applications is October 30th, 2020.  The Anticipated start date is Monday, January 4th, with a monthly remuneration of about $3,000.
