Religion reporting fellowships open [Worldwide]

Journalists who reside outside the United States and cover religion-related topics can apply for a fellowship.

The International Reporting Project (IRP) will grant up to five reporting fellowships for international journalists. The fellowships will support nine-month-long religion reporting projects from April 1 to December 31.

Fellows can propose both long- and short-form projects in a variety of media, such as in-depth stories that will appear in print, online, radio or television media, as well as blog posts, tweets, slideshows and video documentaries.

A stipend of US$12,000 will be provided to each of the five international journalists selected for these reporting fellowships. Fellows may use part of their annual stipend to travel, but in general these fellowships are intended for fellows to report on religion from their country of residence in 2013.

The application deadline is March 8. Religion reporting grants will be offered to journalists in the United States at a later time.
