About the Organizer:
CUNY Graduate School of Journalsm is the only publicly funded graduate journalism school in the heart of the media capital; in the entire Northeast. Our mission is to serve the public interest – by training new journalists who will bring much-needed diversity to newsrooms, by helping mid-career journalists retool their skills, and by partnering with other media organizations to find new paths to excellence.
About the Fellowship Program:
The program, scheduled for Oct. 22-27, will focus on the science of climate change and resilience — defined as a system’s capacity to absorb disturbance and still retain its basic function and structure.
Fellows will be required to complete readings before arriving in New York and will be expected to be active participants in all discussions during the program.
The Fellowship grant covers lodging, tuition, and reasonable travel costs, along with most meals. Financial support for the Resilience Fellowship program is provided by The Rockefeller Foundation.
- The Resilience Fellowship is designed for mid-career journalists who have some background reporting on environmental issues as a staff reporter, producer, editor, or freelancer.
- Applicants should have at least five years of full-time professional experience.
- In special cases, we will consider less experienced applicants who have demonstrated outstanding journalistic achievement.
- All fellows must arrive in New York by 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 22. Our first session will begin that evening.
- Departures may be scheduled no earlier than 3 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 27.
