Applications for $50,000 journalism fellowships are now being accepted by the Phillips Foundation.
The fellowships are open to "working journalists with less than five years of professional experience in print journalism," according to a press release from the 2007 Phillips Foundation Journalism Fellowship Program.
The foundation awards full-time fellowships of $50,000 and part-time fellowships of $25,000 to "undertake and complete a one-year project of the applicant's choosing," focusing on journalism that supports "American culture and a free society."
The foundation calls for applications to be postmarked by March 1, 2007. Fellowship winners will be announced the following May at an awards dinner at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens. The fellowships begin Sept. 1, 2007.
For more information and to see an application, visit the Phillips Foundation Journalism Fellowship Program website. The mission of the Phillips Foundation is to "advance constitutional principles, a democratic society, and a vibrant free-enterprise system."
