Steamboat Springs, CO — Today, Steamboat Institute announced that it has awarded its 2021-22 Tony Blankley Fellowship for Public Policy & American Exceptionalism to Carrie Sheffield, Senior Fellow at the Independent Women’s Forum and founder of Bold TV. Carrie was previously an editorial writer at the Washington Times between 2007 and 2010 where she worked for Tony Blankley, who was the editorial page editor at the time.
Carrie is the former Washington correspondent at Just the News, previously covered Congress for The Hill, and was a founding reporter at Politico. She won a Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship and contributed on political economy at Forbes.
Carrie joins an accomplished roster of Blankley fellows, including Patrice Onwuka (2020), Saagar Enjeti & Amber Athey (2019), Philip Wegmann (2018), Kelsey Harkness Bolar (2017), Hadley Heath Manning (2016), Jillian Melchior (2015), and Tom Rogan (2014).

She managed municipal credit risk at Goldman Sachs and rated healthcare bonds at Moody’s Investors Service.
“I’m thrilled to join Steamboat Institute in promoting American Exceptionalism through the Tony Blankley Fellowship,” said Carrie Sheffield, winner of the 2021 Tony Blankley Fellowship. “I was privileged to work for Tony Blankley at The Washington Times — he was the epitome of class and intellect, a rare blend of civility and strength in an industry too often aflame in vitriol and division. I’m honored to continue Tony’s legacy this year and beyond.”
“We are proud to award the 2021 Tony Blankley Fellowship to Carrie Sheffield, who has already accomplished so much for the cause of liberty and is one of America’s leading young pro-freedom voices,” said Jennifer Schubert-Akin, Chairman and CEO of The Steamboat Institute. “Working under this award’s namesake, Tony Blankley, at The Washington Times makes Carrie the perfect fit to carry on his great legacy of using robust and civil debate to advance America’s founding ideals. This fellowship can help make Carrie’s voice and Tony Blankley’s legacy even more impactful.”
