Daniel Pearl Investigative Journalism Initiative Calls for Applications

-

- Advertisment -

The Daniel Pearl Investigative Journalism Initiative is inviting applications for its 2016 Fellowship programme.

The Project Director is Mary Hadar and Fellows will be mentored by a group of prestigious journalists including Wolf Blitzer, Linda Feldmann, Martin Fletcher, Glenn Frankel, Bill Kovach, David Lauter, Charles Lewis, Clarence Page, Robert Siegel, Paul Steiger, Lynn Sweet and David Wessel.

The initiative was launched by Moment Magazine in 2010 in honor of the 38 year old Wall Street Journal reporter slain by terrorists in 2002 to encourage young journalists to write in-depth stories about a modern manifestation of anti-Semitism or any other deeply ingrained prejudice.

Successful applicants will be given $5,000 to cover the costs of the project – $2,500 up front, and $2,500 upon completion of the story. The edited stories will also be published in Moment Magazine.

International applicants are welcome to apply. Applicants must be between the ages of 22 and 38

Emily Keeler Alhadeff, the 2011 winner of the fellowship testifies that “The DPIJI fellowship provided me the stability, feedback and guidance critical to developing a complex story about a charged issue. This web of professional and personal support is rare these days and was crucial to my growth as a journalist.” 

To apply for the fellowship, send an email to dpiji@momentmag.com including the following:

  • Your name, date of birth and contact information
  • Your resume
  • Three clips from a print or digital publication, including at least one long-form story
  • A description of your story proposal, including how you plan to execute it
  • Two recommendations, one from an editor about your work as a journalist, and one from a journalist or scholar about the content of your proposal.

The deadline for submission is May 2, 2016.
