Fox News has awarded its second annual Charles Krauthammer memorial scholarship, the company announced this week.

Marin Martin, the daughter of Fox News digital senior opinion editor Lynne Jordal Martin, will be awarded the prize of $2,000 per college year for a maximum of four years.

Martin is a senior at Rye High School just outside New York and will attend college this fall to study English literature.


“We are proud to continue the tradition of honoring Charles Krauthammer’s storied legacy with this year’s memorial scholarship recipient," Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott said in a statement. "Marin Martin is an exceptional student with an extremely bright future and her academic curiosity will no doubt live up to the mission that Charles inspired every day. Congratulations to Marin and her family.”

In 2018, Fox announced it had partnered with the National Merit Scholarship Program to establish a memorial scholarship in the name of former commentator Charles Krauthammer.

Krauthammer, a longtime conservative journalist, author and regular commentator on the network, died of cancer that year.

“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,” Scott said at the time the scholarship was established. “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.”

Last year was the first time the scholarship was distributed. That April, Fox News announced that the award was given to two students: Ami Carey, daughter of Fox News Media senior vice president of technical operations Steve Carey; and Michael Carey, son of senior director of IT operations John Carey.
