Novak Fellow Katherine Mangu-Ward, Novak ’05, editor-in-chief of Reason, will serve as the evening’s master of ceremonies as we celebrate the achievements of TFAS Journalism Fellows past, present and future.
The evening’s keynote address will be delivered by our 2019 Thomas L. Phillips Career Achievement Award recipient Roger Kimball, editor and publisher of The New Criterion and the publisher of Encounter Books.
The evening will also honor the life and legacy of Joseph Rago, a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial writer for The Wall Street Journal, who died two years ago at the age of 34. Paul Gigot, editorial page editor of the Journal, will deliver remarks on Joe’s contributions to journalism.
In memory of Joe, the Rago family and The Fund for American Studies have established the Joseph Rago Memorial Fellowship for Excellence in Journalism. The 2019 fellow will be introduced at the dinner.
For more than 25 years, the Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship Program has fostered the careers of outstanding journalists, including Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters, editors of national magazines and authors of best-selling books. By providing essential funding and an extensive network of alumni, Novak Fellowships provide promising journalists the resources to undertake career-building and impactful projects. The fellowships are named in honor of Robert D. Novak, longtime columnist, CNN broadcaster and reporter for the Associated Press and The Wall Street Journal. Since its founding, the program has funded more than 140 journalists.
We hope you will join us on Sept. 12 for a celebration of what we’ve achieved – and the even greater things still to come.
