On Saturday, I had the pleasure of appearing on a panel, along with Jed Babbin, Erick Erickson, and Mark Tapscott, to address the Phillips Foundation Fellows. The Phillips Foundation provides fellowships for projects to be undertaken by journalists who share the Foundation’s mission to advance constitutional principles, a democratic society and a vibrant free enterprise system. In 2008, the Foundation will award grants of $75,000, $50,000, and $25,000 to print and online journalists with less than ten years experience (it just occurred to me that I qualify). Those interested in applying should call John Farley at 202/250-3887 x609 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are the details:
The Phillips Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2008 Phillips Foundation Journalism Fellowship Program. Print and online journalists with less than ten years of professional experience are eligible. The Foundation created this program to provide fellowships for projects to be undertaken by journalists who share the Foundation’s mission to advance constitutional principles, a democratic society and a vibrant free enterprise system.
The Phillips Foundation awards $75,000 and $50,000 full-time fellowships and $25,000 part-time fellowships to undertake and complete a one-year project of the applicant’s choosing focusing on journalism supportive of American culture and a free society. In addition to the regular fellowships, the Foundation awards separate fellowships in specific topic areas: The Environmental Fellowship for a project on the environment from a free market perspective; The Shelby Cullom Davis Fellowship for a project on the impact of free enterprise on society; and The Law Enforcement Fellowship for a project focusing on law enforcement in the United States.
In 2007, the Foundation awarded the following seven fellowships.
