Ted Scripps Fellowships in Environmental Journalism
The fellowships are a nine-month academic program that allows eligible professional journalists to acquire knowledge necessary to cover the environment more effectively and enrich the public's understanding of this crucial subject. The Scripps fellows audit classes, conduct in-depth research, and reflect on critical questions without the pressure of deadlines.
With seminars and field trips, the program brings participants together with leading environmental specialists. This helps journalists better understand key environmental issues, but it also helps the scientific community better understand the media and the way journalists work.
The Ted Scripps Fellowships program covers tuition and fees. In addition, for the 9-month, 2010-2011 academic year, a $48,000 stipend will be paid. Employers are strongly encouraged to continue benefits, including health insurance.
The application deadline is March 1, 2010. For more details, go to the CEJ website. ¬†
Work We <3 | FDP
Instead of spending all our time calling out journalism that doesn't work, we want to find work we like. We'd like to encourage our readers to submit links to content that is moving or challenging and that goes beyond the standard narrative either at the level of form or content. In other words, we want to see journalism that works.
We're particularly interested in work at the nexus of the following categories:
- Please include a comment explaining why the content you're sharing works.
- Comments can be as short or long as desired.
