The Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship Program supports a rising generation of serious and enterprising journalists. This prestigious, year-long program allows writers early in their careers to pursue projects they otherwise would be unable to research and report. Each Novak Fellowship provides $35,000 in grant money and expense assistance. Working print and online journalists with fewer than 10 years of professional experience are eligible to apply. This includes freelance and part-time journalists. Applicants must be citizens of the United States.
