Journalism for Liberty Fellowship

We are looking for mid-career journalists and writers with an interest in the ideas of individual freedom, free market and limited government for our Journalism for Liberty Fellowship.

Liberalist Centre is a libertarian think tank and educational centre that promotes pro-freedom ideas for human flourishing. We are launching a news magazine with a unique niche of publishing investigative stories, in-depth features, and engaging op-ed articles that inform and reveal to our audience ways through which individual liberty and free market are impeded.

Our type of story exposes the effects of frivolous taxes on businesses and consumers, the influence of government bureaucracy, and unnecessary licences and permits on start-ups. Specifically, we advocate for open borders, continental and inter-continental free trades, low tax enough for the government to secure the lives, properties and liberty of the citizens and ensure a judiciary that settles disputes and upholds the rule of law.

Our stories also reveal how new laws or proposed new laws would affect the citizens and how a tax cut create an opportunity for businesses and citizens to thrive.

The fellowship would train successful applicants on the art of pro-freedom writing and reporting, give editorial mentorship to publish quality journalistic pieces, and at the end of the fellowship give three outstanding fellows paid internship opportunities.

Eligibility

Journalism for Liberty Fellowship is open to mid-career journalists and skilled writers—undergraduates or recent graduates.

30th September, 2022
