About the Award

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.
