About this opportunity
Rest of World is excited to announce a new opportunity for reporters who want to explore the intersection of technology and religion through immersive, long-form reporting. We are looking for three reporting fellows to work on ambitious feature stories about how technology is transforming religious practices in Latin America, Africa, Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe. The fellowships are supported through a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.
The three successful applicants will each receive a stipend of $10,000. This amount comprises the writer’s fee and a budget for travel and other approved reporting expenses. The fellow will be supported and mentored by the Rest of World Features team throughout the program. In addition, the fellows will be invited to New York City toward the end of 2024 to visit the Rest of World offices and participate in a symposium to showcase their work.
This fellowship is open to journalists at any stage of their career and based anywhere in the world. While the applicants themselves can be from any country, we prefer that their story proposal is grounded in the country or community they hail from or are deeply familiar with. Applicants should pitch an idea for a story that falls under one of the following themes:
- How technology is being adapted for spiritual and religious practices
- How social media is fueling the rise of religious influencers
- How technology is being used to surveil and target ethnic and religious minorities.
