The Reuters Institute offers two categories of fellowship:
The Journalist Fellowship Programme brings high calibre mid-career journalists to Oxford offering them a period of reflection and the opportunity to carry out media-based research. Its purpose is to allow journalists to tackle subjects in greater depth than is possible under deadline pressure.
The institute accepts a small number of Visiting Fellows who are distinguished practitioners from journalism and the news media or leading academics in fields closely related to the Institute's research projects. These are non-salaried visiting positions designed to promote the educational and research interests of the Reuters Institute through relationships with people employed by other institutions.
