Moment Magazine’s Daniel Pearl Investigative Journalism Initiative (DPIJI) was established in memory of the 38-year-old Wall Street Journal reporter slain by terrorists in 2002. DPIJI provides grants to journalists ages 22 to 38 to research and write in-depth stories about a modern manifestation of anti-Semitism or any other deeply engrained prejudice. Each year, Moment—with the help of an advisory board of journalists—selects one DPIJI Fellow, who receives $5,000 ($2,500 upfront and $2,500 upon publication) to produce a story. Fellows work closely with Moment editors and selected mentors to publish their completed project in Moment as well as partner media outlets. DPIJI is open to applicants of all faith backgrounds and countries. Stories must be written in English. Members of the DPIJI Advisory Board include journalists Wolf Blitzer, Sarah Breger, Nadine Epstein, Linda Feldmann, Martin Fletcher, Glenn Frankel, Robert S. Greenberger, Mary Hadar, Amy Kaslow, Bill Kovach, Charles Lewis, Sidney Offit, Clarence Page, Steven Roberts, Amy E. Schwartz, Robert Siegel, Paul Steiger and Lynn Sweet.
Moment Magazine was founded in 1975 by late Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel and the late writer Leonard Fein. It is led by Nadine Epstein, its editor and publisher, who established the DPIJI in 2010 with the help of Ruth and Judea Pearl and Wall Street Journal reporter Robert S. Greenberger. Moment—an award-winning independent North American magazine that covers the Jewish world and beyond—is a forum for a diverse range thought and is dedicated to combatting prejudice of all kinds.
