The Alicia Patterson Foundation fellowship program for journalists was established in 1965 in memory of Alicia Patterson, who was editor and publisher of Newsday for nearly twenty-three years before her death in 1963. One-year grants of $35,000 are awarded to working print journalists to pursue independent projects of significant interest and to write articles based on their investigations for the APF Reporter, a quarterly magazine published by the Foundation.
