Magic Grant Information Session – Columbia

March 12, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

The David and Helen Gurley Brown Institute at Columbia Journalism School and the School of Engineering at Stanford are delighted to announce its 2021-2022 Magic Grant program. Applications are due May 1, 2021!

To provide more information about our grants and the application process, the Brown Institute is hosting virtual Magic Grant Information Sessions on the following dates:

  • Fri, 3/12 from 3-4pm EST
  • Wed, 3/24 from 11am-12pm EST
  • Mon, 4/5 from 5-6pm EST
  • Fri, 4/16 from 4-5pm EST


Each year, the Brown Institute awards close to $1M in grants and fellowships to foster new tools and modes of expression, and to create stories that escape the bounds of page and screen. We are committed to radical experimentation with the potential to define new priorities and practices for both engineering and journalism.

The “Magic Grant” program provides year-long funding awards ranging from $10,000 to $150,000 (up to $300,000 for teams with members of both the Columbia and Stanford communities). In addition to funding, grantees have access to a distinguished advisory and mentoring group, support for professional development, and connections to an extensive and inspiring alumni network.

  • Eligibility guidelines
