Established by FOX News Media in 2018, the Dr. Charles Krauthammer Memorial Scholarship awards eligible children of network employees a stipend per college year for a maximum of four years. All aspects of the program, including the selection of winners and the administration of their awards, are conducted through the National Merit Scholarship Program by the independent, not-for-profit National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC).

To be eligible, U.S. high school juniors planning to enter college in the fall of 2024 must have taken the PSAT/NMSQT test and met several academic and other requirements set by the NMSC. Winners were selected on a competitive basis without regard to family financial circumstances, gender, race, ethnic origin, or religious preference. Once chosen, the NMSC disburses the scholarship directly to the accredited U.S. college/university following a determination the student has remained in good standing. Furthermore, the scholarship belongs to the student, and will not be affected should their parent leave the company following the presentation of the award.

Dr. Charles Krauthammer served as a contributor to FOX News Media from 2002 until his passing in 2018. Renowned for his political commentary and analysis across FOX News Channel’s signature programming, he made frequent appearances on Special Report with Bret Baier and FOX News Sunday. A Pulitzer prize-winning syndicated journalist and physician, Dr. Krauthammer joined The Washington Post in 1984, where he wrote a weekly syndicated column until his passing and served as a contributing editor to The Weekly Standard. He served as a speechwriter to Vice President Walter Mondale in 1980 and as chief resident in psychiatry at the Massachusetts General Hospital. He began his journalism career at The New Republic.

Dr. Krauthammer received numerous awards throughout his career, including the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, the 2013 William F. Buckley Award for Media Excellence, the 1984 National Magazine Award for Essays and Criticisms, and the first annual Bradley Prize. He also authored the best-selling book “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes and Politics” and “Democratic Realism: An American Foreign Policy for a Unipolar World.” Krauthammer graduated from McGill University with a B.A. in political science and economics.
