2022 Russell Sage Foundation For Visiting Journalist Fellowship

Journalists have a long history of writing and reporting compellingly on topics related to the Russell Sage Foundation’s (RSF) mission to “improve the social and living conditions in the United States.”

The rise of economic inequality and its consequences, disparities in educational achievement and attainment, the impact of modern immigration, and recent racial tensions over urban policing are all examples of topics addressed by journalists and studied by RSF scholars and grantees.

Journalists are critical to our understanding of Americans’ lives and lived experiences because they conduct original research on a wide range of social, political, and economic conditions and present their findings to the public.

About Russell Sage Foundation

The Russell Sage Foundation, one of the oldest American foundations, was established in 1907 with a $10 million gift from Margaret Olivia Slocum Sage (1828–1918), widow of railroad magnate and financier Russell Sage, for “the improvement of social and living conditions in the United States.” Mrs. Sage mandated that the foundation pursue its mission through a wide range of activities, including “research, publication, education, the establishment and maintenance of charitable or benevolent activities, agencies, and institutions, and the aid of any such activities.
