Daniel Pearl Foundation And Press Partners

Daniel Pearl Foundation, Westwood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA, United States

established Established :


In 2002, the Alfred Friendly Press Fellowships (AFPF) and the Daniel Pearl Foundation established a fellowship to honor Daniel Pearl, the American journalist murdered in Pakistan in February 2002. Journalists from the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia are eligible to apply. All Friendly Fellowships, including the Daniel Pearl Fellowships, are awarded to young and mid-career print journalists from developing world countries with an emerging free press. These journalists, usually between the ages of 25 and 35, are assigned to work as general assignment reporters in an American news organization. Reporting and writing give them a practical introduction to the professional and ethical standards of the U.S. print media. Unique among the many training programs available to journalists, AFPF is the only one to offer a non-academic, long-term, hands-on experience in a single newsroom.
