DEADLINE: Grist Fellowship Program

Event Date: 
November 26, 2023

The Grist Fellowship Program is a paid opportunity to hone your skills at a national news outlet. The program is designed to provide newsroom experience for early-career journalists who have a demonstrated interest in environmental and climate journalism and media. Maybe you already have a journalism fellowship or two under your belt, and now want to pivot toward environmental reporting. Maybe you’re a scientist with strong writing chops who wants to reach new audiences. Perhaps you recently graduated from journalism school, or ran your school paper while you were in undergrad. You might even be a freelancer with several years of reporting experience, looking to learn what it’s like to work in a newsroom environment.

In 2024, Grist is offering four year-long fellowships. All fellows are a part of Grist’s award-winning editorial team.

  • Environmental Justice Fellow
  • Indigenous Affairs Fellow
  • Climate News Fellow
  • Climate Solutions Fellow

The annual base salary for these positions is $55,000. As limited-term employees, fellows and their eligible dependents are also eligible to participate in Grist’s health benefits programs. All fellows will receive a company laptop for the duration of their time at Grist. Other benefits include 15 PTO days, unlimited sick time, Grist official holidays, 5 floating personal days, and 3 summer days (June, July, August).

Fellows must have a U.S. address and be eligible to work in the U.S. That being said, they can work remotely from a location of their choosing, provided they can match Grist’s core working hours. Depending on COVID-19 safety guidelines, fellows may also have the option of working in Grist’s Seattle headquarters or New York office space. Fellows are not required to relocate and remote work is always an option for fellows.

Deadline: 11:59 p.m. PT on November 26, 2023 for March 3, 2024-February 28, 2025.
