Magazine’s Daniel Pearl Journalism Investigative Initiative Announces New Funding Initiative to Expose Anti-Semitism
Moment Magazine’s Daniel Pearl Investigative Initiative, with the support of the Daniel Pearl Foundation, is pleased to announce the launch of a fellowship to support reporters pursuing investigative stories that address anti-Semitism, anti-Israel and other prejudices that threaten Jewish rights to dignity and self-determination.
“Only a few years ago it seemed as if anti-Semitism was on the wane but it’s undeniable that the Pandora’s Box of anti-Jewish and anti-Israel sentiment is now wide open both in the U.S. and much of the world,” says Moment‘s editor and publisher Nadine Epstein. “It’s part of Moment‘s position to expose this, and we are proud to do so in memory of Danny Pearl’s legacy.”
One grantee will be awarded $10,000 USD. Applicants will need to make the case for how their proposal addresses problems of anti-Semitism or anti-Israel prejudice in a new way or concentrates on an under-reported aspect of this issue.
Seasoned reporters with experience in longform journalism and investigative background are invited to submit a story proposal of no more than 800 words and a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org attn: DPIJI by December 20, 2016. Please send all applications and questions to email@example.com.
The DPIJI is designed to encourage young journalists to write in-depth stories about a modern manifestation of anti-Semitism or another deeply ingrained prejudice.
