DEADLINE: Vermont Law and Graduate School Summer Media Fellowships

Event Date: 
March 29, 2024

Think like a lawyer. Write like a journalist.

Enhance your journalism skills and deepen your understanding of environmental, agriculture and farm systems, or animal law and policy with a Media Fellowship at one of the nation's top environmental law schools. 

Every summer, Vermont Law and Graduate School's Environmental Law Center brings together legal educators, policymakers, practicing lawyers, and other leaders in their fields to share their expertise in our Summer Session. 

Media fellows have access to our distinguished faculty and visiting policy leaders. They can meet for on- or off-record conversations with these experts, developing new insights, meeting new sources, and gaining renewed enthusiasm for covering the critical issues in climate change, animal law, energy, food and agriculture, and other areas. Each fellow will choose to audit a course from a selection of topics within their specific fellowship category.

Our two Environmental Law Media Fellows and Food and Agriculture Law Media Fellow may audit one two-week, two-credit environmental course in June or July. These fellows will receive a $1,250 stipend, free housing, and a tuition waiver.

Thanks to funding from the American Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®), our two Animal Law Media Fellows will also receive free housing, a tuition waiver, a $500-$1,900 stipend, and travel reimbursement. One fellow may audit Science of Animal Law and Policy, Animal Welfare Law, or The Farm Bill. Another applicant will be selected to participate in the Undercover Investigations of Animal Operations weekend intensive. 

The application deadline for all fellowships is March 29, 2024.
