Submit your application for the Eric Breindel Collegiate Journalism Award and become eligible to receive a cash prize of $10,000 and a paid internship at The Wall Street Journal, Fox News Channel, or The New York Post.
Winners from outside of the New York City area will also receive free housing. The award is open to undergraduate students in all class years (including graduating seniors). Because of the holiday season, the deadline for submissions has been extended to Friday, April 29 2011
The Eric Breindel Memorial Foundation will present the award to the undergraduate columnist, editorial writer or reporter whose work best reflects the spirit of the writings by Eric Breindel: Love of Country and its democratic institutions as well as the commitment to preserve the freedoms that allow such institutions to flourish.
The award, created in memory of the New York Post editor and columnist, includes opinion journalism, news coverage and online articles. It is open to undergraduate writers and reporters of all political convictions and backgrounds and submissions may include college newspapers, magazines or periodicals, as well as online articles published on accredited college institution web sites. The award recognizes the editorial pursuit of freedom and American ideals.
In the past the award has been presented by Rupert Murdoch, Chairman & CEO, News Corporation and Roger Ailes, Chairman and CEO of Fox News Channel and Fox Television Stations. Last year’s winner, John-Clark Levin, is a student at Claremont McKenna College majoring in Philosophy, Politics and Economics and Linguistics. He chose an internship at The Wall Street Journal.
