DEADLINE: GroundTruth Project/WCAI Climate Change Reporting Fellowship

Event Date: 
February 12, 2018

The GroundTruth Project and WCAI, the local NPR member station for the Cape, Islands and South Coast, and a WGBH affiliate, are offering a new reporting fellowship that will explore how individuals and communities are coping with the realities of climate change.

The fellowship will provide two emerging journalists the opportunity to report for six months in WCAI’s newsroom in Woods Hole, MA and bolster its environmental radio and digital coverage.

The fellows will work out of WCAI’s office, independently and together, producing weekly stories for broadcast and digital. They will also work with WCAI on a larger “capstone” project to be published in the fall of 2018. Ideally, one or both fellows would have audio reporting experience, and one fellow would have visual storytelling experience, such as with photography, videography or data visualization.

The fellowship, based in Woods Hole, MA, begins April 9, 2018 and runs through the end of September. GroundTruth, which has a small bureau in Woods Hole for covering climate change, will provide housing and a fellowship stipend.

Deadline to apply is February 12 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
