The Poynter Fellowship in Journalism at Yale brings distinguished journalists and members of the media to campus to interact with students, faculty, and the public. By way of lectures, panels, seminar discussions, and informal meetings, Poynter aims to provide a cultivated look at topics of interest from all possible perspectives.
Our programming will continue to adhere to the COVID-19 related university guidelines and policies outlined on the COVID-19 site. Due to the ever-changing situation and varying event formats, hosts must carefully review and comply with the Visitors Policy and Events, Gatherings & Meetings Policy.
Per the updated Visitor Policy, effective August 15, 2022, all visitors must be up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines as defined by the CDC, carry vaccination and booster documentation, and follow university mask guidance. These policies may evolve throughout the year, so we encourage you to check these pages frequently and consult your department’s Health and Safety Leader with any specific policy questions.
The Poynter Fellowship Committee will review all proposals from faculty members and student organizations. Once the committee approves a proposal, the Poynter Fellowship will notify the sponsor of the approved funding so they may begin coordinating the visit. To submit a proposal, please fill out the fields below and submit.
Typically, the Poynter Fellowship provides $1,500 that can be used to cover expenses such as honoraria, promotional materials, travel/accommodations, and audiovisual support for a single speaking engagement. The Office of Public Affairs and Communications also assists with publicity efforts through digital advertising. Additional funding requests will be considered, depending on the scope and complexity of the proposed virtual visit.
Large-scale or multi-session events may be eligible for more support than listed above. Please note any additional requests for funding in your proposal.
