ON-Lion Letter

Working journalists with less than 10 years of professional experience in print or online journalism are eligible to apply for The Fund for American Studies' (TFAS's) Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship Program.  Applicants propose a one-year writing project on a topic of their choosing, focusing on journalism supportive of American culture and a free society.  In addition, the program awards separate fellowships on the environment, free enterprise, and law enforcement.

Launched in 1994, the Novak Fellowship Program offers full-time $50,000 fellowships and part-time $25,000 fellowships.  The full-time fellowships include a $40,000 fellowship grant and up to $10,000 to reimburse expenses.  The part-time fellowships comprise a $20,000 grant and up to $5,000 for expenses.  

A journalistic project funded under this program should be original and publishable.  It will be delivered in four quarterly installments with the potential to be published sequentially in a periodical publication or all together as a book.

TFAS is now accepting applications for the 2016-17 fellowships.  The application is viewable online here.  Applications and materials must be submitted online or postmarked by February 9.

Finalists will be invited to Washington, D.C., in Spring 2016 for interviews with the judges, and the winners will be announced at an awards dinner at the National Press Club in D.C. in May.

Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation supports the Novak Journalism Fellowship.
