Knight journalism fellows named at Stanford
STANFORD -- Twelve U.S. journalists have been awarded John S. Knight Fellowships at Stanford University for the 1996-97 academic year.
During their stay at Stanford, the Knight Fellows will pursue independent courses of study and participate in special seminars. The 1996-97 program marks the 31st year that Stanford has offered fellowships for professional journalists.
Financial support for the U.S. fellows comes primarily from a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The program also will include seven International Knight Fellows. They will be announced later this month.
The Knight Fellowships program director is Professor James V. Risser. James R. Bettinger is deputy director.
Following are the 1996-97 U.S. Knight Fellows and their principal areas of study:
The U.S. fellows were chosen by the Knight Fellowship Program Committee: Condoleezza Rice, Stanford provost; James Adams, Stanford professor of engineering; Robert Boyd, Knight Ridder national correspondent; Robert Gregg, Stanford dean of the chapel; Gerald Gunther, Stanford professor of law; Saundra Keyes, Miami Herald managing editor; Marion Lewenstein, Stanford professor of communication; Thomas F. Mulvoy Jr., Boston Globe managing editor; Sheila Stainback, anchor/reporter, CNBC.
