$25,000 journalism fellowship to cover religion overseas

USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism is now accepting applications for the Knight Luce Fellowship for Reporting on Global Religion. The fellowship offers stipends for American journalists to report and write stories that illuminate how religion crosses geographic, temporal and ideological borders as well as how it establishes real and virtual boundaries.

Staff reporters, affiliated freelancers and self-employed web journalists, working in the States or abroad, who cover politics, social and cultural issues as well as generalists and religion specialists are encouraged to apply. Successful applicants will be awarded stipends from $5,000 to $25,000 to subsidize travel, living and miscellaneous costs.

Within the six-month period of their fellowship, fellows will travel outside the U.S. to report stories that explore how religion, religious institutions, and religious people effect change in on-the-ground social, political and economic conditions. They might examine how ideas and ideologies circulate among home and diaspora communities or how religious and political coexistence and cooperation are promoted or inhibited. These stories will be developed for delivery on multiple platforms – print, radio, TV, online. Finally, at the completion of their projects, several fellows will be invited to spend three days in residence at USC to present their work, hold master classes for journalism students, and give public lectures for the USC community.

Applications are due by December 17, 2010. For more information about the Knight Luce Fellowship and to apply, visit: http://annenberg.usc.edu/Knight-Luce.aspx
