Baldwin Business and Financial Graduate Journalism Fellowship

The Baldwin Business and Financial Graduate Fellowship for Business Journalists provides $70,000 per year, for three to five years, to enable a distinguished business journalist to earn a doctoral degree.

The fellowship is funded by Kenneth W. Baldwin Jr., a 1949 USC journalism alumnus. This is Baldwin’s second gift to the School of Journalism and Mass Communications. In 2009, he donated $500,000 to establish the Baldwin Business and Financial Journalism Endowment Fund to support teaching, research and other activities.

Mark Tatge was selected as the initial Baldwin Fellow.  On completion of the program, the Baldwin Fellow will graduate with a doctorate in mass communications and will be prepared for a tenure-track assistant professor position.
