Good news, procrastinators: We’re extending the application deadline for Grist’s spring 2017 fellowship. The new deadline is Monday, Nov. 14, 2016. The previous deadline was Nov. 8, i.e. Election Day. Please do get out and vote!
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. This time around, we’re looking for all-stars in three different areas: editorial, justice, and video. You’ll find a full program description and application requirements here.
Our current crop of fellows has been crushing it. Emma Foehringer Merchant tracked how much climate change was mentioned (or rather, hardly mentioned) during the presidential debates. Sabrina Imbler has doubled as a budding on-screen star and writer (if you haven’t already, check out this insightful profile of a young activist in Peru). And Amy McDermott flipped some spooky stats about climate change into a zany Halloween how-to. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: We ❤️ 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 Nov. 14, no judgment here.
