Middlebury Fellowships in Environmental Journalism

Jump to Comments

The Middlebury Fellowships in Environmental Journalism each year take 10 journalists near the start of their careers and help them work through an ambitious reporting project in print, web-based, or radio journalism, from the beginning through publication or broadcast.

Graduate fellows each receive $10,000 to help with reporting and living expenses during the fellowship year.  We interpret the environment broadly–reporting projects dealing with economics, culture, global issues, and the like are acceptable as long as they center in some way on the human relationship with the physical world.

Interested applicants should write a two-three page letter pitching their idea, just as they would to an editor at a magazine or a broadcast program.  The letter should also include a proposed plan of research for the fellowship year.

Applicants should enclose three writing or broadcast samples, preferably of professionally published work, as well as recommendations from two people who have worked with the applicant as an editor or teacher, and a resume with contact information.

Deadline: Applications will be due by May 16, 2011.
