Deadline: 15 January 2013
Open to: beginning journalists, students in their final year or graduate students with reporting and writing backgrounds at their school newspapers or elsewhere.
Internship: three month paid internships
The Robert L. Bartley 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. As many as five fellows will be selected each year through an application process that will be judged by senior members of the Wall Street Journal’s editorial board. Fellows will work as writers and editors on the Journal’s opinion pages — editorial, op-ed, Leisure & Arts—in the U.S., Europe or Asia.
Bartley Fellows will assist in researching and writing editorials, editing op-ed articles, editing Leisure & Arts page features, and editing letters to the editor for the Journal and their website HERE.
Start and finish dates are flexible, though they anticipate that most Fellows will work during the summer months. The fellowship begins in June and runs through the end of August.
Applicants should be beginning journalists, upperclassmen or graduate students 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.
There is no application form. However, all materials must be received by January 15, 2013. If you’d like to be considered, please send a cover letter, resume and your best clips via email to: [email protected]

A decision will be made in February or March 2013. Only applicants who are selected for final consideration will be interviewed.
