Help for the college-bound who excel at music or journalism: The Daniel Pearl Fellowship

If you are a college-bound senior who lives in or near Berkshire County and excel at either music or journalism,  it's time to apply for the Daniel Pearl Fellowship.  (LINK)

After Stanford University, Pearl began his journalism career in The Berkshires at The Transcript and Berkshire Eagle, moving on ultimately to The Wall Street Journal. His life ended with his beheading by extremists in Pakistan. After his death, his family, the publisher of The Eagle and others established a small scholarship to encourage brilliant youth with similar talents.
