Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship
The Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship funds one-year writing projects committed to advancing constitutional principles, a democratic society and a vibrant free-enterprise system. The Novak program has awarded 135 fellowships over the past two decades to promising young journalists who are climbing the ranks as groundbreaking reporters, editors, editorial page writers, columnists and authors.
FAS offers transformational programs that teach the principles of limited government, free-market economics and honorable leadership to students and young professionals in America and around the world.
TFAS programs inspire these future leaders to make a difference in their communities and throughout the world by upholding the values essential to the preservation and success of a free society. The fellowships will commence on 1 September 2017.
Print and online journalists in the United States with less than 10 years of experience.
Full-time fellows will receive USD 75,000, and part-time fellows will receive USD 35,000.
Finalists will be invited to Washington for interviews with the judges, and the winner will be announced at an awards dinner at the National Press Club. The evening will also honor the 2017 recipients of the Thomas L. Phillips Career Achievement Award and the Kenneth Y. Tomlinson Award for Outstanding Journalism. Recent recipients of these prestigious awards include 2016 Phillips Award recipient Andrew Ferguson of The Weekly Standard and 2016 Tomlinson Award recipient Bret Baier of Fox News Channel.
