I am delighted to announce the 2011 Robert L. Bartley Fellows. The fellowships are named in honor of the late Editor of the Journal, Bob Bartley, for young men and women whose views are broadly consistent with Bob’s beliefs in economic and political liberty and who aspire to careers in journalism. They will work this summer as paid interns on the Journal’s opinion pages in New York, in London for The Wall Street Journal Europe and in Hong Kong for The Wall Street Journal Asia.
