Paid Fellowships at Grist


Fellowships: Editorial, Justice, and Video


Want to grow as a journalist while absorbing a universe of green knowledge? Apply for the Grist Fellowship Program.

The Grist Fellowship Program is an opportunity to hone your skills at a national news outlet and deepen your understanding of environmental issues. We’re looking for early-career journalists with a variety of skills, from traditional reporting to multimedia whizbangery. We will offer exposure to the leading sustainability thinkers and theories of our time, real-world experience at a fast-paced news site, and the occasional “Is a hot dog a sandwich?” debate.

For our spring term, which begins in February 2017, we are offering three fellowships: an editorial fellowship, a justice fellowship, and a video fellowship. Fellows must make a six-month commitment. Each fellowship pays $2,600 per month. The editorial and video fellowships are based in Seattle, the justice fellow has the option to work remotely.

We are looking for early-career writers, reporters, producers, and personalities. Candidates are most likely college or j-school grads, with some experience in journalism. Our primary subject areas are climate, clean energy, sustainable food, livable cities, and environmental justice.
