The late Charles Krauthammer is being honored by his former employer.
Fox News has established a scholarship in Krauthammer’s name.
A Constant Professional
Krauthammer was one of the few journalists that did not allow his personal feelings to get in the way of reporting the truth.
Before working at Fox News, he had a very long and illustrious career as a journalist.
In fact, Krauthammer won the Pulitzer Prize in 1987 for his Washington Post column.
He also served two political administrations.
For President Jimmy Carter, Krauthammer was the Director of Psychiatric Research.
Krauthammer also served as the speechwriter for Walter Mondale.
Most recently, Krauthammer was a regular contributor for Fox News.
He was also a panelist on Special Report with Brett Baier.
When Krauthammer passed away from complications of cancer, the news world lost one of the true greats in the industry.
It’s was no surprise that Fox News wanted to honor him with the Charles Krauthammer Memorial Scholarship.
“Charles was a beloved member of the Fox News family, but more importantly, he was an incredible mentor and role model for millions of Americans across the country,” Suzanne Scott, Fox News CEO, said.
“We are proud to honor Charles, his legacy, impact, and countless contributions with a new scholarship program enabling the next generation of thought leaders the opportunity and education they need to reach their dreams,” she added.
The fund will provide scholarship winners with $2,000 per year for a maximum of four years.
The children of Fox News and Fox Business Network employees are eligible for the scholarship.
