About the program

Want to grow as a journalist while absorbing a universe of environmental knowledge?

The Grist Fellowship Program is a paid opportunity to hone your skills at a national news outlet and deepen your understanding of environmental issues. We’re looking for early-career journalists and media professionals with a variety of skills, from traditional reporting to multimedia whizbangery. We will offer real-world experience at a fast-paced news site, training in a variety of skills key to a journalism career, exposure to the leading sustainability thinkers and theories of our time, and of course, the occasional homemade croissant.

Fellows have gone on to outlets including The Atlantic, The Verge, Wirecutter, Outside Magazine, Atlas Obscura, Greentech Media, and of course, Grist. Have a question about our fellowships? Reach out to us if you’d like to be sent a digital program brochure, or if you have specific questions we can help answer. You can also scroll down to meet Grist’s current fellows and read some of the fantastic work they’ve produced.
