Dow Jones WSJ Opinion Section, Summer 2017 Internship - Robert L. Bartley Fellowship Program in United States

Job Description:

WSJ Opinion Section, Summer 2017

Internship - Robert L. Bartley Fellowship Program

About the Program

Throughout his 30 years as The Wall Street Journal’s Editorial Page Editor, Bob Bartley inspired principled and original thinking that changed and shaped the society in which we all live. He also devoted attention to teaching and motivating talented young people, many of whom have gone on to careers in journalism at the Journal and elsewhere. The Bartley fellowships are consistent with that legacy.

Bob Bartley achieved many honors during his long tenure here, including a Pulitzer Prize and, shortly before his death in December 2003, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In awarding that medal, President Bush cited Bob as “one of the most influential journalists in American history.” The Robert L. Bartley fellowships will help to perpetuate not just Bob’s memory but, above all, the principles and priorities to which he devoted his distinguished career.

Eligibility and Requirements

The fellowships, consisting of paid internships, will be provided to young thinkers and writers whose views are broadly consistent with Bob Bartley’s philosophy and who aspire to careers in journalism. Applicants should be beginning journalists, juniors or seniors with reporting and writing backgrounds at their school newspapers or elsewhere. It is essential that they be familiar with, and interested in, the ideas for which the Journal editorial page stands. As many as five fellows will be selected each year through an application process that will be judged by senior members of our editorial board. Fellows will work in New York as writers and editors on the Journal’s opinion pages—editorial, op-ed, Arts in Review.

For background on the editorial page and our philosophy, please consider reading the statement, issued by our section, and letter to readers of the Journal, found below.
