New York, June 13, 2012—The Committee to Protect Journalists is launching the Steiger Fellowship program to give budding journalists an opportunity to contribute to the defense of press freedom and learn about the challenges journalists face around the world.

The six-month fellowship was created with donations made in honor of former CPJ Chairman Paul Steiger, who led the organization for six years and continues to serve on CPJ’s advisory board.

“Paul Steiger has been a champion of press freedom and this fellowship is a way for us to recognize his contribution and inspire young journalists to support the struggle for free expression,” said CPJ Executive Director Joel Simon.

Steiger, who is currently editor-in-chief and president of ProPublica, said, “CPJ is the best place I know to learn about the challenges to press freedom and how to overcome them. The fellowship is a great opportunity for young journalists, and I’m delighted to be associated with it.”

The Steiger Fellow will carry out an independent project on press freedom while supporting CPJ staff and working on a variety of assignments, including documenting press freedom abuses and assisting in international advocacy efforts.

The fellowship, which will begin in September 2012, will be a paid position. Applications from current students, recent graduates, or early career journalists with an interest in freedom of expression and the press are being accepted until August 1, 2012. For further details on responsibilities, qualifications, and application requirements, visit CPJ’s Jobs page.
