Environmental Reporting Fellowships
Program Information

From 2001 to 2006, the Metcalf Institute Environmental Reporting Fellowships were made available to one or two minority journalists to study basic science and report on the environment.

The Environmental Reporting Fellowships provided support for fellows to attend Metcalf Institute's Annual Workshop for Journalists; participate in four weeks of independent study at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography with science faculty mentorship; and a $28,000 stipend for 37 weeks to work as a reporter covering science and the environment, with mentorship, at one of two media outlets, WRNI in Rhode Island, and later WBUR in Boston, or The Providence Journal. Funding for the 2001-2002 fellowship was provided by the Sharpe Family Foundation. Later fellowships were funded by The Providence Journal Charitable Foundation.

Applicants were required to have a minimum of two years' journalism experience, be a U.S. citizen, and could include science writers or reporters from any media. The fellowships did not include compensation for travel.
