You mean if there are LTS (long term support) kernels in Fedora? The answer is no.

Fedora keeps constantly pulling in new kernels, and is even re-basing to new kernel releases within one Fedora release.

See current kernels :

This question has been answered many times. Fedora is a fast moving target showcasing (and often promoting/developing) bleeding-edge technologies from the free software world. There's no concept of long term support in Fedora land (kernel included). RHEL and CentOS, derived from Fedora, are more suited for users/organizations that value rock solid stability and reliability.
