William F. Buckley Jr. nurtured two generations of conservative journalists. His enormous legacy includes scores of conservative editors and writers. The annual William F. Buckley Jr. Fellowship in Political Journalism, sponsored by the National Review Institute, is a unique opportunity for a recent college graduate to work as writer/reporter with National Review magazine for a one year term starting in May/June.
National Review roving correspondent Kevin D. Williamson serves as Director of the Buckley Fellowship for NRI. Kevin offers editorial feedback, guidance, and support in weekly reviews with the Buckley Fellows, as well as hosts monthly lunches with leading conservative thinkers and journalists.
Rich Lowry, editor of National Review, said “The Buckley journalism program has a proven record of training top-notch young conservative journalists.”
NRI is currently accepting applications for the 2017/2018 Fellowship. Interested applicants should send a cover letter, current résumé, recommendation from a former employer or professor, current transcript (unofficial acceptable), and a writing sample. The cover letter should explain the applicant’s education, work, other activities, and future goals as they relate to a fellowship working at National Review magazine. In other words- “why you and why National Review?”
