International journalists chosen Knight Fellows

STANFORD -- Seven journalists from five continents have been awarded John S. Knight Fellowships at Stanford University for the 1992-93 academic year.

They will join 12 U.S. journalists who were named last month.

During their stay at Stanford, the U.S. and international Knight Fellows will pursue independent courses of study and participate in special seminars. The 1992-93 program marks the 27th year that Stanford has offered fellowships for professional journalists.

Support for the international fellows will come from the Reuter Foundation, the Knight Foundation, the German Marshall Fund of the United States and, in some cases, from the fellows' employers. Most of the financial support for the U.S. fellows comes from a grant from the Knight Foundation.

The director of the program is Prof. James V. Risser. James R. Bettinger is the deputy director.

Following are the 1992-93 international Knight Fellows and their fields of study:

  • Bill Birnbauer, night editor, The Age, Melbourne, Australia; management, international relations and ethics.
  • David Evans, entertainment/lifestyles editor, Ottawa Citizen, Ottawa, Canada; economic, social and cultural forces of Central and Eastern Europe.
