William F. Buckley Jr has an enormous legacy that has nurtured two generations of conservative journalists. The National Review Institute is sponsoring the annual William F. Buckley Jr. Fellowship in political journalism for recent college graduates. This unique opportunity will provide editorial feedback, guidance, and support. Buckley Fellows will work as writer/reporter with National Review magazine for a one year term starting in May/June.

Buckley Fellows will receive guidance from National Review correspondent Kevin D. Williamson. Past Buckley Fellows have made huge impacts and have had articles that have been picked up by major outlets such as the Drudge Report.

Rich Lowry, editor of National Review, said “The Buckley journalism program has a proven record of training top-notch young conservative journalists.”

Applications for the next year’s fellowship, starting in summer 2015, are due by February 1, 2015Interested 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?”
