Poynter Fellowship in Journalism

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, programming for the Poynter Fellowship in Journalism will adhere to all university guidelines and policies. On November 6th, Provost Strobel announced new university health and safety guidance. In his note, he outlined the continued sensitivities around travel, gatherings, and inviting visitors to campus. While we encourage the Yale community to continue to participate in the Poynter Fellowship in Journalism, all hosts will be required to plan virtual events so that we can minimize exposure, ensure events are accessible, and keep our community safe and healthy. 

Funding for virtual events will remain consistent with that of in-person visits, and can be used to  cover expenses such as honoraria, promotional materials, audiovisual support, and any other expenses related to hosting the virtual event. Please note, the sponsoring faculty member is responsible for the coordination and execution of logistics pertaining to this visit, including all technical details needed to support virtual events.

As state and university policies change, we will appropriately reevaluate our programming guidelines and update the site and hosts accordingly.
