Phillips Foundation Names Journalism Fellowship Program After Robert Novak

The Phillips Foundation is naming its Journalism Fellowship Program in honor of Robert Novak, who provided the inspiration for the program.

The Phillips Foundation today announced that it is naming its Journalism Fellowship Program in honor of Robert Novak, the legendary journalist and founding trustee of the Foundation who provided the inspiration for the program. The Foundation trustees voted unanimously to rename the program the Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship Program in honor of Novak, who passed away last month after a yearlong battle with cancer.

Chairman Thomas L. Phillips said: “Bob Novak devoted many hours to the Phillips Foundation where he served as a founding trustee and proposed the launch of our Journalism Fellowship Program more than 15 years ago. Thanks to Bob’s vision, we have awarded $3 million in fellowships to 85 promising young American journalists since 1994. Bob’s spirit lives on in his work. It is a privilege to name our Journalism Fellowship Program in honor of this great American journalist.”

The Phillips Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 1990 to advance the cause of objective journalism. The Foundation established its journalism fellowship program to provide annual grants for journalism projects supportive of American culture and a free society. The fellowship program is open to print and online journalists with less than 10 years of professional experience. The Foundation seeks applicants who share its mission to advance constitutional principles, a democratic society, and a vibrant free enterprise system.

The Foundation awards $75,000 and $50,000 full-time fellowships and $25,000 part-time fellowships. The winners devote themselves to a yearlong writing project which they propose as part of their application. Fellowships were awarded to 10 young journalists this year. The 2010 winners of the Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship Program will be announced on Tuesday, May 11, at the Foundation’s Seventeenth Annual Awards Dinner at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
