The Marie Colvin Fellowship, sponsored by News Corp, supports a 10-week reporting assignment with The Wall Street Journal for a graduating senior in Stony Brook University’s School of Journalism. The fellowship gives one outstanding graduating senior or master’s student the opportunity to work at one of the Journal’s international bureaus. A faculty selection committee chose finalists for the award, and Journal editors select the winner.
The Marie Colvin Fellowship honors the journalistic ideals of acclaimed international correspondent Marie Colvin, who was killed in 2012 while covering the conflict in Syria for the Sunday Times of London, the weekly paper owned by News Corp. During the nearly two decades she worked at The Times, she covered thousands of stories, traversing the globe from Chechnya to Sri Lanka to the Middle East.
