Details

Fully Funded Daniel Pearl Fellowship in USA enable journalists from South Asia and the Middle East to work in U.S. newsrooms to experience the dynamics of a free press environment first hand. The Daniel Pearl Journalism Fellowships, established in partnership with the Alfred Friendly Press Fellowships, brings mid-career foreign journalists from the Middle East and South Asia for nearly six months to work at mainstream U.S. newsrooms, including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and The Wall Street Journal. They also spend a week at the Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles, for which some of them still write and blog. At the end of their stay, they share their experiences at a free public event hosted by the Los Angeles Press Club. The impact of the fellowship through their work reaches hundreds of thousands of people in their countries when they return.

The fellowship program begins in March with a two-week orientation seminar in Washington, DC designed to prepare the fellows – both personally and professionally – for the challenges of living and working in the United States. At the middle of the program, fellows and staff come together for a week to attend seminars focused on writing, editing, multimedia reporting and investigative reporting/Computer Assisted Reporting. A final seminar in Washington reunites the fellows and allows them to compare and evaluate their experiences and discuss their impressions of the American media. Fellows return to their home countries in late August to begin sharing their knowledge and skills with colleagues, editors and publishers in their home newsrooms.

Benefits

The fellowship covers all costs of program-related international and domestic U.S. travel, health insurance and provides a monthly stipend to cover basic living expenses. It is highly recommended that fellows bring additional money with them. While family members may visit for up to one month, they cannot accompany the fellow for the duration of the fellowship.
