Backed by the resources of Marquette University and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, O’Brien Fellows will spend nine months researching, reporting and writing the stories they care most deeply about — stories with the potential to change policies and improve lives. This fully funded fellowship allows newsroom professionals to do the best work of their careers on issues of vital importance while they also mentor the next generation of journalists.

Marquette is a Catholic and Jesuit institution located in the heart of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Marquette is also the only one of 28 Jesuit universities in the country to be accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication. Our university celebrated 100 years of providing journalism education in 2010.
