DANIEL PEARL FELLOWSHIPS (DPF), USA

Description
Sharing the goals of AFPF, the Daniel Pearl Foundation partnered with AFPF in 2003 to offer special fellowships to honor the life and work of journalist Daniel Pearl, The Wall Street Journal South Asia bureau chief who was kidnapped and murdered in Pakistan in 2002. Daniel Pearl Fellows -- eight from Pakistan, three from Egypt and one each from Afghanistan, Malaysia, Nepal, Turkey and Yemen -- have worked at The Berkshire Eagle/North Adams Transcript, Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, ProPublica, San Francisco Chronicle and the Atlanta, New York and Washington, DC bureaus of The Wall Street Journal. Applicants for the DANIEL PEARL FELLOWSHIPS (DPF) come from areas that Daniel Pearl covered as a journalist -- the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia -- and must submit an essay as to why they would like to be a Pearl Fellow. Additional opportunities are provided to Daniel Pearl Fellows that are in line with the mission of the Daniel Pearl Foundation -- to encourage dialogue among people of different cultures, reduce cultural and religious tensions and create a platform for responsible and creative journalism. Fellows are required to work one week at a Jewish publication and participate in a public discussion, typically in Los Angeles where the Pearl family resides.
