About The Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship Program:
If you are a working journalist with less than 10 years of professional experience in print or online journalism, you are eligible to apply for an exciting fellowship program offered by the 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 Foundation awards separate fellowships on the environment, on free enterprise and on 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.
In addition to the funds set aside to reimburse the Fellow's expenses - $10,000 for a full-time fellowship and $5,000 for a part-time fellowship - the fellowship grant will be paid in four increments to correspond with completion of the quarterly writing installments.
The application period for the 2014-15 Robert Novak Journalism Fellowships has closed. For questions or information on applying for the 2015-16 Novak Fellowships program, please contact Vanessa Henderson at vhenderson@TFAS.org.
