National Review Institute is seeking applicants for the prestigious Thomas L. Rhodes Journalism Fellowship. The Rhodes Fellow will hone his or her journalistic skills and deliver essays that preserve and promote the conservative principles championed by Bill Buckley and exemplified in Mr. Rhodes’s lifetime of work as president of National Review magazine — in particular an abiding conviction that limited government, free markets, and individual liberty are necessary for a prosperous society. The Rhodes Fellowship is sponsored by National Review Institute, and is generously supported by the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation (on whose board Mr. Rhodes served as chairman). National Review will regularly publish the work of the Rhodes Fellow, who will directly benefit from the training, guidance, and editorial oversight of NR’s editors and regular interaction with other staff writers.
Qualifications and Terms:
The ideal candidate would be a recent college graduate who shows interest, capability, and experience in writing on the areas of domestic policy, including but not limited to tax and fiscal policy, health care, limited government, education reform, affirmative action, the state of the conservative movement, and other subjects which have been of particular concern to Mr. Rhodes.
The Fellow will work from NR/NRI’s headquarters in New York City, where he would be overseen and directed by NR’s editors, who would interact daily with the Rhodes Fellow for the purposes of training in writing (editorial, reporting, and commentary), as well as in promotion, publicity, podcasting, and social-media skills. The fellowship has a term of one year, renewable on an annual basis for up to two additional years (no more than a total of three years).
The application deadline is August 15, 2017. For more information, visit nrinstitute.org.
