Anyone interested in applying for the First Things  junior fellowship for next year needs to apply by midnight Sunday. See the boxed note on the  home page for details. It is a great opportunity for the young person interested in editing, publishing, religion and public life, engaging the issues important to religiously serious people, working in New York City, getting to know R. R. Reno, etc.

I mention this because last year even after we picked the new junior fellows, I heard from people I was sure would have known about it, who hadn’t known about it. I’d like to avoid again hearing some bright young person say with despair “If only I’d known . . . ” or some professor with lots of bright students ask “Are you guys still doing that internship thing?”

If you’d like to apply or want to encourage someone to apply, remember that — this being a magazine — a demonstrated ability to meet the deadline matters.
