Ted Scripps Fellowships in Environmental Journalism

Send by emailThe 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.
