Hey procrastinators: You’ve got one week left to apply for Grist’s fall 2016 fellowship. Applications are due Monday, May 2, 2016. You’ll find a full program description and application requirements here.

If you’re just now hearing about the fellowship, here’s the gist: We’re looking for early-career journalists to come work with us for six months and get paid. Doesn’t sound horrible, right? RIGHT?

Here is what our current fellows have to say about the program, with the help of emoji:

Melissa Cronin: “I’m learning to make the 🌍  less 💩.”

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.

Xian Chiang-Waren: “👍👍.”

Clayton Aldern: “There are free 🍎 in the kitchen.”

Seriously though, we love our fellows.

So what are you waiting for? Oh, right, the last possible minute. As long as we receive your application by 11:59 p.m. PT on May 2, no judgments here.

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.
