Robert L. Bartley Fellowships are paid internships of one to six months at Wall Street Journal offices in the U.S., Europe, or Asia. Fellows 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 its website.
Candidates should be beginning journalists, upperclassmen, or graduate students with reporting and writing backgrounds at their school newspapers or elsewhere. They should also 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 judged by senior members of the Journal’s editorial board.
Fellows’ start and end dates are flexible, although most work during the summer months.
