National Press Foundation offers two all-expense-paid fellowships for the Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists, October 12 –15

Special to SABEWNational-Press

Each year, the National Press Foundation offers two all-expense-paid fellowships to working print, online or broadcast journalists based in the U.S. for the annual October “Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists,” at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA. The fellowship includes full tuition, housing, most meals and round trip transportation.

The seminars offer participants an opportunity to expand their knowledge of business by attending courses conducted by leading Wharton faculty, hear guest lectures by business leaders, and compete in an intensive, computer-simulated strategic management exercise.

Friends of the late Frank Holeman, a former associate director of the foundation; the Scripps Howard Foundation and the Freddie Mac Foundation have endowed these NPF fellowships.

See Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists for more information about the seminars.
