Sanders Foundation Announces Philosophy in the Media Initiative

Barry Lam (Vassar College), associate director of the Marc Sanders Foundation, says that this fall the foundation will select 30 “Sanders Media Fellows” who next year will “attend exclusive training and networking sessions with media professionals”:

Ten fellows will be selected for Op-ed writing, ten fellows for longform journalism/magazine writing, and ten fellows for podcasting. Fellows will receive a 00 honorarium and will be brought together for a three-day workshop with editors and writers from the New York Times, The New Yorker, among others, and producers and editors from NPR, This American Life, and others. All philosophers at any career stage eligible, no institutional affiliation required.
The Marc Sanders Foundation has created a new fellowship program that “aims to increase the presence of philosophy in print, audio, and video media by training philosophers to write and produce for the public and by connecting philosophers to editors and commissioners in the media industry.”

The program is funded by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
