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. The Fellowship aims to provide a cultivated look at topics of interest from all possible perspectives through lectures, panels, seminar discussions, and informal meetings.
Our programming adheres to the COVID-19-related university guidelines and policies outlined on the COVID-19 site. Hosts must carefully review and comply with the Visitors Policy and Events, Gatherings & Meetings Policy.
Per the updated Visitor Policy, all visitors are strongly encouraged to be up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations as recommended by the CDC before coming to campus. Visitors must refrain from coming to campus if they test positive for COVID-19 or experience symptoms suggestive of COVID-19. 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.
Faculty members and registered student organizations are invited to submit a proposal to host a Fellow during the academic year. Once approved, the Poynter Fellowship will notify the sponsor so they may begin coordinating the visit.
Typically, the Poynter Fellowship offers a funding allocation of $1,500 to cover various expenses, including honoraria, promotional materials, travel and accommodations, and audiovisual support for a singular speaking engagement. The Office of Public Affairs and Communications also assists with publicity efforts through digital advertising. Additional funding requests are considered depending on the scope and complexity of the proposed visit. Large-scale or multi-session events may be eligible for more support than listed above.
