"The SEJ conference, which I attended thanks to the fellowship, introduced me to some of the best journalists in North America. I have also greatly benefited from the mentorship program, with some helpful tips from my mentor for my career. SEJ's webinars have helped me look for new story ideas and introduced me to some of the environmental issues that aren't widely spoken about."

Give to SEJ's Conference Diversity Travel Fellowships to help cover the costs of registration, travel, lodging and other expenses of Diversity Fellowships. Here's what past participants had to say:

  • "I would not have been able to attend without the SEJ/Uproot diversity fellowship, and I am truly grateful for it as this is easily the best conference I've been to as a newer journalist. I am truly grateful for the program and hope it can be expanded so even more people, who otherwise would not be able to, can attend."
  • "As an emerging freelance photojournalist in the midwest I have limited resources and opportunities to attend conference. This limits my ability for professional growth and networking. I would not have been able to attend the workshop without the Uproot Project Fellowship."

Give to the SEJ Members in Need Fund to help cover fee waivers and other costs of participating in SEJ programs, for members experiencing financial hardship.
