The New Yorker’s Sarah Stillman is among this year’s MacArthur Fellows

September 22, 2016

More than 30 journalists and non-fiction writers have been chosen as MacArthur Fellows since 1981. Sarah Stillman, a staff writer at The New Yorker, is the latest to join that list.

Stillman’s fellowship comes with “a no-strings-attached $625,000 grant for their exceptional creativity and potential for future contributions to their fields,” according to the press release. Stillman, a longform investigative journalist, has written about the lives of foreign workers on U.S. Army bases and about what happens when juveniles are put on the sex-offender list.

New Yorker staffers had a pretty good 2016 so far, too, including two Pulitzer wins.

Here’s a look at other journalists and non-fiction writers who’ve also been named MacArthur Fellows in the past.
