The National Press Foundation is pleased to announce that colleagues of Wanda D. Moebius have created a memorial fund in her honor to support one or more women journalists to attend the Paul Miller Washington Reporting Fellowship program in 2021.

Moebius, a longtime Washington, DC-based public affairs professional, was a friend of the National Press Foundation and a passionate supporter of the advancement of women and diversity in journalism. Most recently, she served as Global Leader for Enterprise Public Affairs at Johnson & Johnson, advancing policies to create a healthier future for patients around the world.

The Paul Miller Fellowship program was created in 1987 and has trained 627 journalists, many of whom have gone on to become distinguished correspondents and newsroom leaders in Washington and around the nation. They have won Pulitzer Prizes, Emmy Awards, Peabody Awards and other top honors. The fellowship provides a primer on Washington agencies, institutions and issues, offering fresh sources, story ideas and unparalleled opportunities to get to know and learn from other journalists. On-the-record access to officials, experts and seasoned journalists enhance and add insight to fellows’ work.

Johnson & Johnson has committed $5,000 to the Wanda Moebius memorial fund and will match individual donations 2-1. If you would like to donate, you may do so here.
