The Write Stuff

For more than a decade, the Phillips Foundation has offered fellowships for young journalists to write books or work on other lengthy projects. The next batch of recipients will benefit from improved compensation (up to $75,000 for full-time) and increased eligibility (less than 10 years of professional writing experience).

It’s a remarkable opportunity. The deadline for applying is March 1, 2008. Details here.
