DPIJI Grants and Application Process

DPIJI Grants and Application Process

 

Initiative to expose prejudice—open to journalists ages 22-38

Moment Magazine’s Daniel Pearl Investigative Journalism Initiative (DPIJI) was established in memory of the 38-year-old Wall Street Journal reporter slain by terrorists in 2002. DPIJI provides grants to journalists ages 22 to 38 to research and write in-depth stories about a modern manifestation of anti-Semitism or any other deeply engrained prejudice. Each year, 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.
