DEADLINE: Grist Fellowship Program

Event Date: 
December 19, 2022

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.

Grist offers six year-long fellowships. All fellows are a part of Grist’s award-winning editorial team.

  • Environmental Justice Fellow
  • Indigenous Affairs Fellow
  • News & Politics Fellow
  • Food & Agriculture Fellow
  • Climate Solutions Fellow
  • Data Fellow

The annual base salary for these positions is $50,000. 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.

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: December 19, 2022 for March 1, 2023-February 29, 2024.
