Want to grow as a journalist while absorbing a universe of green knowledge? Apply for the Grist Fellowship Program. The Grist Fellowship Program is an opportunity to hone your skills at a national news outlet and deepen your understanding of environmental issues. They’re looking for early-career journalists with a variety of skills, from traditional reporting to multimedia whizbangery.

Type: fellowship

Field: Journalism

Fellowships

For their spring term, which begins in March 2018, they are offering three fellowships:

1. News Fellow: 

Are you a curious, self-motivated, hard-working individual who wants to grow as a journalist and storyteller? The Grist news fellowship may be the opportunity for you.

The news fellow will work full-time, making daily contributions to Grist’s editorial operations including (but not limited to) reporting, research, story ideas, writing, and creative experiments. You will be expected to write quick news updates, reported stories, and one mini-feature a month. You will also identify a long-term special project to produce in collaboration with others on the team. They will encourage full participation in staff discussions and meetings, seek input on issues large and small, and laugh politely (or heartily, depending on the circumstances) at all your jokes.

Benefits

The news fellow can elect to work out of Grist’s Seattle office or work remotely. Fellow must make a six-month commitment. The fellowship pays $2,750 per month. In special cases the fellowship will be renewable once by mutual agreement between the fellow and Grist. Renewal candidates will be considered alongside the applicant pool for the next fellowship cycle.

2. Justice Fellow: 

Are you a budding journalist looking to develop your voice, tell stories about compelling people and communities, and work at a news shop that’s making a difference? Are you obsessed with justice for all? The Grist environmental justice fellowship may be the opportunity for you.

With the mentorship and support of Grist’s editorial staff, the justice fellow will report on the connections between social inequality and the environment. You will explore the ways in which the environmental movement can become more inclusive, especially in the current moment — and how communities of color are developing new ways to fight for cleaner air and water and safer neighborhoods. They’re especially interested in journalism that identifies communities and people working on home-grown solutions. You will be expected to write quick news updates, reported stories, and one mini-feature a month. You will also identify a long-term special project to produce in collaboration with others on the team.

The justice fellow will be part of their larger fellowship program, a six-month career development program for early-career journalists. They will encourage full participation in staff discussions and meetings, seek input on issues large and small, and give you a custom emoji in Slack (it’s true!).

Benefits

The justice fellow can elect to work out of Grist’s Seattle office or work remotely. If you work remotely, you will be encouraged to report on stories in your home community. Fellow must make a six-month commitment. The fellowship pays $2,750 per month.

In special cases, the fellowship will be renewable once by mutual agreement between the fellow and Grist. Renewal candidates will be considered alongside the applicant pool for the next fellowship cycle.

3. Video Fellow

Are you a curious, self-motivated, hard-working individual who wants to grow as a multimedia journalist and storyteller? The Grist video fellowship may be the opportunity for you.

The video fellow will work alongside Grist’s award-worthy video team to produce explainer videos, shareable short videos, and longer-term projects. You will be expected to produce one explainer video a month and two short-form videos a month, and to assist on the video team with weekly production. You will lead multimedia experiments, collaborate with their social media manager, and push Grist to innovate new ways to tell stories. You will also identify a special project to produce in collaboration with others on the team. They will encourage your full participation in staff discussions and meetings, seek your input on issues large and small, and suggest the occasional one-block stroll to the picturesque Seattle waterfront.

Benefits

The video fellow works out of Grist’s Seattle office, full-time. Fellow must make a six-month commitment. The fellowship pays $2,750 per month. In special cases, the fellowship will be renewable once by mutual agreement between the fellow and Grist. Renewal candidates will be considered alongside the applicant pool for the next fellowship cycle.
