Logos Fellowship

The new Logos Fellowship program is a year-long accelerator program for conservative journalists, activists, and opinion leaders. Modeled on successful tech-industry accelerators, the Logos Fellowship will consist of a three-day retreat in the Palm Beach area in February 2024 and ongoing mentorship, amplification, and promotion. Fellows will bring a specific “culture war” project to the program, which our team will help nurture over the course of the year. The goal is to help move these independent projects from conception to execution, so that they begin to shape the discourse and change public policy. Some topics that we hope to address are critical race theory, gender ideology, higher education reform, crime and policing, and civil rights law.
