Journalism fellowships available for young reporters

The Phillips Foundation, a nonprofit organization seeking to "advance constitutional principles, a democratic society and a vibrant free enterprise system," is now accepting applications for its annual Robert Novak Journalism Fellowships, named for the conservative, investigative columnist. Journalists with less then 10 years professional experience, and who share the Foundation's core principles, are eligible.

Full-time awards of $50,000 and part-time awards of $25,000 are given to journalists to complete a one-year project of their choosing that focuses on "journalism supportive of American culture and a free society," a press release says. The foundation also awards year-long fellowships focusing on the environment, the benefits of free-market competition and law enforcement. Applications must be postmarked by Feb. 12, 2013, and winners will be announced in May 2013. For more information, click here.
