Want to grow as a journalist while absorbing a universe of environmental knowledge?

The Grist Fellowship Program is a paid opportunity to hone your skills at a national news outlet and deepen your understanding of environmental issues. We’re looking for early-career journalists and media professionals with a variety of skills, from traditional reporting to multimedia whizbangery. We will offer real-world experience at a fast-paced news site, training in a variety of skills key to a journalism career, exposure to the leading sustainability thinkers and theories of our time, and of course, the occasional homemade croissant.

Fellows have gone on to local reporting jobs ranging from Crosscut in Seattle to the Daily Hampshire Gazette in Massachusetts, as well as to national outlets including The Atlantic, The Verge, Wirecutter, Outside Magazine, Atlas Obscura, Greentech Media, and of course, Grist.

Please check back here soon for more information on our spring application deadline.
