UC Berkeley - Earth Journalism Scholars

Asia Global North America South Asia

The Earth Journalism Scholars program is an ongoing collaboration between the Earth Journalism Network and the University of California at Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. It is centered around the Earth Journalism course on international environmental reporting taught during the spring semester. 

Each year two visiting scholars -- international, mid-career journalists who have shown dedication and skill in covering environmental issues -- will be selected to participate in the Earth Journalism class co-taught by EJN's director, James Fahn. They'll also be expected to enroll in other classes (generally of their choosing but in consultation with the program administrators) related to journalism or the environment.

Travel, lodging and tuition costs will be covered by the program. Scholars will also receive a modest stipend to cover basic living expenses.

Since this is a graduate-level program, all applicants must have completed a bachelor’s degree or equivalent, must commit to attend for the full length of the scholarship program and commit to taking classes related to journalism or the environment at the university.
