O’Brien Fellows spend nine months reporting stories with the power to compel change.

Backed by Marquette University and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, O'Brien helps news professionals dig deep while mentoring student journalists.

The program honors Marquette alumni Alicia and Perry O'Brien. Their daughter, Patricia Frechette, and her husband, Peter, donated $8.3 million in 2012 to create the fellowship.

O'Brien is accepting applications from Dec. 1, 2019 – Jan. 20, 2020, and will select three to five journalists to complete in-depth projects.

  • Receive a $65,000 salary stipend and additional support.
  • Work from the new O’Brien suite at Marquette University’s Diederich College of Communication near downtown Milwaukee and the Lake Michigan shore.
  • Publish or broadcast the project through your home news organization or, in the case of independent journalists, another outlet.
