FREEDOM FORUM CLOSES OFFICE, PHD PROGRAM

Nonprofit Focuses On Upcoming DC Move


As part of a prioritizing process driven by its plan to build a headquarters and
Newseum on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, the Freedom Forum has closed its
San Francisco office and has cut its Ph.D. Program for Journalists, a six-year
partnership with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of
Journalism and Mass Communication.

The $50,000-a-year fellowships – which will end after the current fellows
complete their programs – were intended to help professional journalists
earn the academic credentials to teach at the college level. The Arlington, Va.-
based Freedom Forum is a nonpartisan, international foundation dedicated to free
press and free speech.
