The Earth Journalism Scholars program is inviting non-US journalists, particularly those from developing countries, to apply for a scholarship to attend the University of California-Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism for the spring 2015 semester.
The visiting scholarship is intended for mid-career journalists with at least five years’ experience, who have shown dedication and skill while covering environmental issues. The scholars will be selected in September 2014 and begin their scholarships in mid-January 2015.
The program will cover the costs of travel, lodging and tuition. Scholars will receive a modest stipend to cover basic living expenses.
All applicants must have completed a bachelor’s degree or equivalent, must commit to attend for the full length of the scholarship program (January to May 2015), and commit to taking university classes related to journalism or the environment.
In addition to completing the application form, applicants must submit two samples of their reporting and at least one letter of reference.
Applicants must be fluent in spoken and written English.
