Metcalf Institute provides science training fellowships each year for professional journalists in all media.
The Annual Science Immersion Workshop for Journalists is a week-long fellowship that focuses on coastal, marine and environmental science and is available for approximately ten professional journalists. The program emphasizes basic methods of scientific research, the principles and ethics that guide scientific inquiry, opportunities to cultivate scientific sources, and deepening journalists' understanding of how environment and the public interest intersect.
In the past, Metcalf Institute has offered the Environmental Reporting Fellowships, a 41-week fellowship for traditionally under-represented racial or ethnic minority journalists. From 2001-2010 this program increased science training for journalists, diversity in science reporting, and informed reporting on the environment. (From 2006 to 2009, this program was called Diversity Fellowships in Environmental Reporting.)
Metcalf Institute partnered with the Yale Forum on Climate Change & the Media to offer the Metcalf-Yale Forum Fellowship for Climate Change and Business Reporting in 2009. This fellowship provided travel, lodging, and conference registration costs for business journalists to attend the Society of Environmental Journalists' 2009 Conference, including two special sessions on the economic impacts of climate change.
