Robert Novak Journalism Fellowships
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. Learn more at TFAS.org/Novak.
Joseph Rago Memorial Fellowship
The Joseph Rago Memorial Fellowship for Excellence in Journalism was established last year in honor and memory of Joseph Rago, a former editorial board member at The Wall Street Journal who passed away in 2017. The annual fellowship provides a nine-month internship with The Wall Street Journal’s editorial team and is open to journalists with less than five years’ experience. One fellow is selected each year through an application process that is judged by senior editors at the Journal, senior leaders at The Fund for American Studies and the family of Joe Rago. Learn more at TFAS.org/Rago.
Thomas L. Phillips Career Achievement Award
The Thomas L. Phillips Career Achievement Award recognizes a leader who has made major contributions to the field of journalism during a long and distinguished career. The award is named in honor of Thomas L. Phillips, a widely respected businessman and philanthropist who was responsible for establishing the Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship Program more than 25 years ago. Phillips is the founder of The Phillips Foundation and Eagle Publishing, as well as a TFAS Trustee Emeritus and former member of the Board of Visitors for TFAS Journalism + Communications programs.
