Are you looking to support the next generation of conservative journalists and thought leaders? The MRC's Investigative Journalism Fellowship Program is designed to influence the next generation of journalists involved in public policy, law, and media today.

Our competitive fellowship program provides the on-the-job, competitively-paid training for young professionals to succeed in today’s fast-paced, demanding media industry and to confront the rising challenges against conservatives.

In addition to building their professional skills and contributing to the conservative movement, MRC fellows also:

  • Participate in lunches with MRC Founder and President, Brent Bozell, conservative guest speakers, and members of senior staff.
  • Engage in professional development opportunities to receive feedback on resumes, practice interview strategies, and professionally manage social media presence.
  • Attend networking events at conservative nonprofits and think tanks, professional happy hours, and conferences (such as the Values Voter Summit, CPAC, and the Young America’s Foundation’s annual Conference).

A gift to the MRC helps support valuable fellow training and contributes to the development of the next generation of conservative leaders.

Taking part in the Fellowship has given me the opportunity to learn how to be a journalist through first hand reporting experience. With the help of CNS’ skilled and experienced editors, I have learned how to find stories, conduct interviews, contact government agencies, and improve my writing. My time on the Hill has helped me learn the ins and outs of Congress, and has given me the chance to see what it is like to be a Capitol Hill reporter day in and day out.
