Medill alumna headed to New York on Knight-Bagehot Fellowship

The Office of Fellowships is pleased to announce that Jenny Gross (Medill '10) has been named to the 2018-2019 class of Knight-Bagehot fellows!  Through this mid-career fellowship, Jenny will take classes in business, law, and international affairs at Columbia University.

Jenny is currently the U.K. politics correspondent for The Wall Street Journal, where she covers Brexit and national security. After graduating magna cum laude, she freelanced from Johannesburg for the Associated Press and Wall Street Journal.  She has also covered energy markets for Dow Jones Newswires in London. She is a recipient of an Overseas Press Club Foundation scholarship and was part of a team of reporters chosen as finalists for a Gerald Loeb Award in 2017, for coverage of Britain’s referendum on the European Union.

Knight-Bagehot fellowships provide full tuition and a living stipend of $60,000 for experienced journalists to take graduate courses at Columbia’s schools of business, law, and international and public affairs. Fellows also attend special seminars at the journalism school, led by scholars and business experts during the nine-month program, which begins in August. The program is open to journalists with at least four years’ experience.
