The International Reporting Project announced this month that it is accepting applications for fellowships for U.S. journalists to report on religion internationally. Up to five grants to qualified journalists will be awarded this fall to support three-week long reporting trips to cover stories that deal with the role of religion in the subject country. In addition to roundtrip international airfare, the stipend will include a lump sum of $5,000 for associated expenses. The U.S. Religion Fellowship is supported by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.
Applicants should propose both long- and short-form reports in a variety of media, such as online, print, radio, television, blogs and v-logs, and social media. All subjects dealing with the role of religion in the applicant’s country will be eligible.
The deadline for applications is June 28, 2013. The application form is available here.
