Metcalf-Yale Forum Fellowship
for Climate Change and Business Reporting

2009 Agenda  |  2009 Bios

Seven business journalists received fellowships to attend and participate in two special sessions on covering climate change as part of the Society of Environmental Journalists' 19th Annual Conference in Madison, Wisconsin, on October 9-10, 2009.

The fellowships for business journalists were offered jointly by Metcalf Institute and The Yale Forum on Climate Change & The Media.

The fellowships provided travel expenses and SEJ Conference registration fees for October 9 and 10, including lodging at the conference headquarters hotel. Fellowship recipients attended and participated in two special sessions organized by Metcalf Institute and The Yale Forum and in ongoing SEJ conference activities. The two special sessions addressed the costs of addressing/not addressing climate change through mitigation and adaptation strategies; and the economic forces driving mass circulation journalism and the future outlook of environmental reporting and reporting on climate change in an age of media turmoil.

This fellowship opportunity is now closed. For additional information about the 2009 fellowship, please contact Sunshine Menezes at the Metcalf Institute ( ) or Bud Ward at The Yale Forum (
