Fellowship for environmental journalism opens (Worldwide)
Middlebury College and the Monterey Institute of International Studies are accepting applications for the Middlebury Fellowships in Environmental Journalism. The fellowship takes 10 journalists near the start of their careers and helps them work through an ambitious reporting project in print, Web-based, or radio journalism, from the beginning through publication or broadcast.
Fellows meet together twice during the year; once in the fall on the Middlebury campus in Vermont, and once in the spring at the MIIS campus in California.
Graduate fellows each receive US$10,000 to help with reporting and living expenses during the fellowship year. 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.
Journalists from outside the United States are encouraged to apply if they can demonstrate proficiency in written English.
Applications will be due by May 15, 2013.
