Apply Now for New Environmental Journalism Fellowship
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 program, scheduled for Oct. 22-27, will focus 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.
Our Fellows won’t just spend the week sitting in a classroom. We’ll be kayaking in Jamaica Bay, riding bicycles on city streets, and searching across New York for solutions to some of the world’s most difficult environmental problems.
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.
Financial support for the Resilience Fellowship program is provided by The Rockefeller Foundation.
The application deadline for this inaugural fellowship is midnight on Aug. 31, 2017.
All Fellows must arrive in New York by 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 22. Our first session will begin that evening.
Departures may be scheduled no earlier than 3 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 27.
While the grant cannot pay for additional days in New York, we encourage you to extend your trip in order to enjoy all the city has to offer. Fellows will not have time during the program to explore.
