Do you want to develop as a journalist while learning a vast amount about the environment? Submit your application for the Grist Fellowship Program 2023.
A compensated opportunity to improve your talents at a major news organization and broaden your knowledge of environmental concerns is the Grist Fellowship Programme. The training is intended to provide aspiring environmental journalists with the skills they need to thrive in the climate and environmental media. They include instruction in a variety of skills essential to a future in journalism, real-world experience at a bustling news organization, and exposure to the top sustainability theorists and thinkers of the day.
Fellows have moved on to outlets like The Atlantic, Capital B, The Verge, Wirecutter, Outside, Atlas Obscura, Greentech Media, and of course, Grist after a year of working full-time at Grist and gaining essential skills in environmental journalism.
- The annual base salary for the positions is $50,000.
- As limited-term employees, fellows and their eligible dependents are also eligible to
participate in Grist’s health benefits programmes.
- All fellows will receive a company laptop for the duration of their time at Grist.
- Open to early-career journalists who have a demonstrated interest in environmental and
climate journalism and media.
- They especially encourage applicants from underrepresented backgrounds to apply.
- You can apply to multiple fellowships in a given cycle as long as you meet the specified
qualifications for each position.
- Fellows must have a U.S. address and be eligible to work in the U.S. That being said, they can
work remotely from a location of their choosing, provided they can match Grist’s core
working hours. Depending on COVID-19 safety guidelines, fellows may also have the option
of working in Grist’s Seattle headquarters or New York office space. Fellows are not required
to relocate and remote work is always an option for fellows.
The application window for Grist’s 2023-2024 fellowships will close on December 19, 2022.
