About The Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship Program:
The Novak Journalism Fellowship Program was launched in 1994 to nurture a new generation of responsible journalists. Legendary journalist Robert Novak provided the inspiration for the program, which was named in his honor following his passing in 2009. Novak Fellows devote a full year to a journalism project supportive of American culture, a free society, and free enterprise.
The Novak program has awarded 130 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. Novak Fellows include Steve Hayes of The Weekly Standard and Fox News, Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist, and Tim Carney of the Washington Examiner.
The application period for the 2015-16 Robert Novak Journalism Fellowships has closed. For questions or information on applying for the 2016-17 Novak Fellowships program, please contact Vanessa Henderson at vhenderson@TFAS.org.
