DEADLINE: Grist Fellowship Program

Event Date: 
November 16, 2020

The Grist Fellowship Program offers two opportunities for early-career journalists and media professionals with a variety of skills, from traditional reporting to multimedia whizbangery. We will offer real-world experience at a fast-paced news site, training in a variety of skills key to a journalism career, exposure to the leading sustainability thinkers and theories of our time. Deadline: Nov 16, 2020 for Winter/Spring 2021

With the mentorship and support of Grist’s editorial staff:

  • The News & Politics Fellow will be expected to write quick news updates, newsletter items, and short, reported stories. You’ll help chronicle the progress being made to tackle the climate crisis, whether it’s coming from scientific laboratories, the halls of Congress, or companies and corporations.
  • The Environmental Justice Fellow will report on the connections between social inequality and the environment. You will explore the ways in which the environmental movement can become more inclusive, especially in the current moment — and how communities of color are developing new ways to fight for cleaner air and water and safer neighborhoods. We’re especially interested in journalism that identifies communities and people working on homegrown solutions.

Fellows can be based anywhere in the United States. Global health conditions permitting, at a future date there may be opportunities to work out of Grist’s Seattle office or New York hub. All fellows who work remotely will be encouraged to report on stories in their home community.

The six-month fellowship program, which runs twice yearly, pays $3,334 per month.
