Washington, DC, November 1, 2010 -- The Phillips Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2011 Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship Program.  Print and online journalists with less than 10 years of professional experience are eligible.  The Foundation created this program to provide fellowships for projects by journalists who share its mission to advance constitutional principles, a democratic society and a vibrant free enterprise system.

The Phillips Foundation awards $50,000 full-time fellowships and $25,000 part-time fellowships to undertake and complete a one-year project of the applicant's choosing focusing on journalism supportive of American culture and a free society.  In addition, the Foundation offers separate yearlong fellowships on the environment, on the benefits of free-market competition, and on law enforcement.  There are also Alumni Fund Fellowships funded by donations from current and former Phillips Fellows.  Alumni Fund Fellowship winners write one magazine-length article on their topic.
