The fellowship, a project of the Knight Center in Science and Environmental Journalism, is supported by a grant from The 11th Hour Project, a program of The Schmidt Family Foundation. Fellowships are open to print and audio journalists. Reporting and writing will take place from June to November, with two required workshops at UC Berkeley, from May 29 to June 2, then again in December.
The application deadline is March 15. Applications "should include a one-page pitch with a clearly defined story idea, not just a subject," the school says. "The pitch should reflect some preliminary research, providing a clear sense of place, characters, narrative and reporting strategy. The application also requires a curriculum vitae, two letters of recommendation and published clips." For more information or to apply, click here.
