Reporters from the developing world are invited to submit applications for the 2007 Alfred Friendly Press Fellowships, which provides print and online journalists with hands-on experience in U.S. newsrooms.

The 10 successful applicants will spend six months reporting for a U.S. news organisation and will learn U.S. journalistic traditions that they may adapt and apply in their home countries.

To be eligible, applicants should be from the developing world and be between the ages of 25-35, work full-time as a journalist, have three years of journalism experience in print or online media, and have an excellent command of English (all activities are conducted in English).

Fellowships include the Daniel Pearl Fellowships, which honour the life and work of the "Wall Street Journal" South Asia correspondent who was kidnapped and murdered in 2002. Daniel Pearl fellows come from South Asia, North Africa and the Middle East, areas that Pearl covered as a journalist, and their work encourages dialogue among different cultures and religions.

The fellowships begins in March 2008, and cover health insurance, a monthly stipend to cover basic living expenses, and all costs of programme-related travel. Deadline for applications is 15 August 2007.

For more information, ring: +1 (202) 429-3740, email: info[at]pressfellowships[.]org, or see:
