WASHINGTON, D.C. — Seven journalists have been selected to receive one of journalism’s most sought-after fellowships, an Alicia Patterson Foundation grant. The winners were selected through a highly competitive process of screening by a panel of accomplished judges, as well as submitting detailed proposals, examples of past work and references. Recipients spend their fellowship year traveling, researching and writing articles or photo essays on their projects for the APF Reporter, a quarterly magazine published by the Foundation and available via this web site.
Judges for the 40th annual competition included:
J. Ross Baughman, photo editor, The Washington Times
James Conaway, editor, Preservation Magazine, and APF Fellow ‘74

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 and six-month grants of $17,500 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, an actual and web magazine published quarterly by the Foundation at www.aliciapatterson.org.
