DPIJI Fellowship Application Open to journalists ages 22–38

Moment’s Daniel Pearl Investigative Journalism Initiative (DPIJI) allows young journalists to do in-depth reporting on anti-Semitism and other deeply ingrained prejudices around the world

Each cycle, Moment—with the help of an advisory board of journalists—selects one DPIJI Fellow, who receives $5,000 ($2,500 upfront and $2,500 upon publication) to produce a story. Fellows work closely with Moment editors and selected mentors to publish their completed project in Moment as well as partner media outlets.

To apply, please provide the following:

  1. Name, date of birth and contact information.
  2. Resume.
  3. Three stories from a print or digital publication, including at least one long-form story.
  4. A brief description of the story you want to investigate and how familiar you are with the issue.
  5. A recommendation from a professor or editor about why you are the right person to report this story; and phone numbers and e-mails for three additional references.
  6. A detailed reporting plan that lists the 20 or so sources you intend to interview and a timeline for travel, if needed.
  7. Fellows are expected to begin work within three months of being accepted; final copy is due within six months. Preference is given to applicants familiar with the issues they propose to investigate.

Moment places a high value on in-depth investigative reporting that provides the reader with a 360-degree view of the story and those are skills that we look for in a DPIJI Fellow.

Please email completed applications to dpiji@momentmag.com

Deadline for applications is March 30th 2019
