Alex Trebek Legacy Fellowships

The deadline to apply for Alex Trebek Legacy Fellowships was September 12th – we are no longer accepting applications. Decisions will be made and selected applicants will be notified in the next few weeks.

The Television Academy Foundation is proud to offer Alex Trebek Legacy Fellowships for attendees to the 2022 Media Educators Conference. Named in honor of the late Alex Trebek, longtime host of the quiz show Jeopardy!, the Alex Trebek Legacy Fellowships will cover costs including registration, travel and/or hotel accommodations for this year's conference. Preference will be given to attendees from minority-serving institutions. Applicants must be attending the entire conference. The Alex Trebek Legacy Fellowships have been made possible thanks to a generous gift from The Harry & Judy Friedman Family Foundation.

Note: 2021 Alex Trebek Legacy Fellowship recipients and applicants are welcome to reapply.
