Mosaic—in partnership with the Tikvah Fund and The Paul E. Singer Foundation—is pleased to announce a new fellowship for aspiring writers, editors, and journalists interested in Jews, Judaism, modern Israel, and American democracy.


The fellowship, generously endowed in the name of the late Charles Krauthammer, is dedicated to finding, nurturing, and supporting select members of the next generation of gifted thinkers in the realm of Jewish ideas, thereby honoring the legacy of this preeminent public intellectual and staunch defender of Israel and the Jewish people.

Fellows will receive a full-time salary and benefits for two years, and be based in our offices in New York City or Washington DC. They will work closely with the senior editorial staff of Mosaic, writing, researching, and editing in-depth essays and articles on such themes as

  • Jews and American politics, culture, and religion

  • Jewish thought and history

  • Zionism and modern Israel

  • The strategic situation in the Middle East

  • The enduring legacy of Judaism and Jewish civilization.


Announcing Mosaic's Krauthammer Fellows for 2019

The editors of Mosaic—in partnership with the Tikvah Fund and the Paul E. Singer Foundation—are greatly pleased to announce the selection of two outstanding young writers as the first Krauthammer Fellows.

This year’s inaugural competition for the Krauthammer Fellowship was open to anyone under the age of twenty-seven who expected to have a BA degree by May 2019. We received an impressive number of applications from qualified candidates from all over the United States as well as the UK and Israel, and conducted in-depth interviews with many of them.

Please meet the two winners. Tamara Berens is completing her final year at Kings College, London, where she is earning a BA in war studies. Michal Leibowitz will be graduating from Stanford with a BA in philosophy and religious studies and an MA in religious studies. Both have proved themselves as emerging writers of exceptional talent, range, maturity, and promise.

At Mosaic, where they will begin their two-year fellowship this summer, the fellows will work closely with the senior editorial staff in researching, writing, and editing in-depth essays and shorter pieces on a variety of subjects and themes related to the Jews, Judaism, and the Jewish state.

We’re thrilled to welcome Tamara Berens and Michal Leibowitz to Mosaic.
