The Phillips Foundation in Washington, D.C., is inviting applications for its 2008 Journalism Fellowship Program.  The program provides $75,000 and $50,000 full-time and $25,000 part-time fellowships to print and online journalists with less than 10 years of professional experience who share the foundation's mission to advance constitutional principles, a democratic society, and a vibrant free-enterprise system.

The fellowships last one year and are spent on a project of the applicant's choosing.  The Phillips Foundation's trustees serve as judges for the competition.  Applications are available online.  The deadline to apply for '08's fellowships is March 1, 2008.  The winners will be announced in Spring.

The foundation awarded seven fellowships in 2007, to Ryan T. Anderson, Sonny Bunch, Michael Goldfarb, Alexander Halperin, Jacob Laksin, Cheryl Miller, and Kathleen Monaghan.

Halperin researched and wrote a piece on "Business Off the Grid:  Free Enterprise and the Brighter African Future," Laksin wrote "Killing with Kindness:  How Extreme Multiculturalism Impacts the War on Terror," and Miller put together "Modern Parenthood:  How Biotechnology is Changing the American Family."

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee helps support the fellowships.
