Applications are open for Resilience Journalism Fellowship Program that is focused on the science of climate change and resilience — defined as a system’s capacity to absorb disturbance and still retain its basic function and structure. Financial support for the Resilience Fellowship program is provided by The Rockefeller Foundation.
This fall, up to 15 journalists will gather in New York City for six days of study and discussion as part of the new Resilience Journalism Fellowship at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.
The Fellowship grant covers lodging, tuition and reasonable travel costs, along with most meals. Fellows will be required to complete readings before arriving in New York and will be expected to be active participants in all discussions during the program.
- The Resilience Fellowship is designed for mid-career journalists who have some background reporting on environmental issues as a staff reporter, producer, editor, or freelancer. Applicants should have at least five years of full-time professional experience. In special cases, The Foundation will consider less experienced applicants who have demonstrated outstanding journalistic achievement.
- The Foundation is looking for journalists interested in improving both the quality and quantity of their coverage of climate resilience issues. They want journalists who will be active throughout the Fellowship, willing to take on the challenges they present.
- The Foundation will consider applicants who fall into either of the following categories:
- Journalists who are employed by a news organization or freelance full-time as writers, producers, editors, photographers, or multimedia reporters.
- Journalism innovators whose ideas have potential to alter the journalism landscape in a fundamental way.
- The Foundation encourages applications from international journalists who are proficient in speaking and writing English.
