Description

Mosaic—in partnership with the Tikvah Fund and The Paul E. Singer Foundation—is pleased to announce a new fellowship for aspiring writers, editors, and journalists interested in Jews, Judaism, modern Israel, and American democracy. The fellowship is named after the late Charles Krauthammer, preeminent intellectual journalist and staunch defender of Israel and the Jewish people.

Fellows will receive a full-time salary and benefits for two years, and be based in our offices in New York City or Washington DC. They will work closely with the senior editorial staff of Mosaic, writing, researching, and editing in-depth essays and articles on such themes as

  • Jews and American politics, culture, and religion
  • Jewish thought and history
  • Zionism and modern Israel
  • The strategic situation in the Middle East
  • The enduring legacy of Judaism and Jewish civilization.

The Krauthammer Fellowship is open to anyone (1) under age 27 and (2) with a BA degree as of May 2019. The fellowship begins in the summer of 2019. Candidates should submit (a) a résumé, (b) a detailed cover letter explaining why they are interested in the fellowship, (c) a short summary of three ideas for essays that they would like to pursue as a fellow, and (d) two writing samples.

Applications should be addressed to fellowship@mosaicmagazine.com and are due December 31, 2018. We will select the winners by February 15, 2019.New
