SEJ's crowdfunding campaign for 2013 conference fellowships closed June 7th. Thanks to the generosity of SEJ members and friends, we are able to offer several fellowships through a competitive process.
If you are a professional journalist reporting on the environment, you may apply for a fellowship to help cover costs of attending SEJ's Oct 2-6 conference in Chattanooga by emailing to Jeanne Scanlon a short proposal (3 pages max) and resume, including contact information.
The purpose of the fellowships program is to ensure the widest possible representation of journalists covering the environment; therefore, in your application, please provide SEJ with information about your media market, the type of media in which you work, and/or your race/ethnicity if you think this is relevant. Please also include a statement of need and commentary on how you intend to apply the conference experience to your future work.
The fellowship includes a registration waiver, one Thursday tour, and a stipend of up to $500, which may be applied to hotels and travel and/or conference sessions not covered under registration.
Applications were due by Midnight EDT June 24th. A list of winners will be published on the conference website page on Monday, July 22nd.
