Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 seminars will take place online in October. There will be no fellowships necessary to attend the online seminars this year. See Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists for more details.
In other years, the National Press Foundation offers two all-expenses-paid fellowships for the annual Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. The fellowship includes full tuition, housing, most meals and round-trip transportation. All U.S.-based journalists whose work represents the highest standards of business journalism are eligible to apply.
The seminars offer participants an opportunity to expand their knowledge of business by attending courses conducted by leading Wharton faculty, hearing guest lectures by business leaders, and competing in an intensive, computer-simulated strategic management exercise.
