Applications are now being accepted for the Knight Luce Fellowships for Reporting on Global Religion. The fellowships, sponsored by the Knight Chair in Media and Religion and funded by a grant from the Henry R. Luce Initiative on Religion and International Affairs, 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.
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
