Pulitzer Center Campus Consortium Student Fellowship Application

Thank you for your interest in the 2020 YPCCC/Pulitzer Center Fellowship on Climate Change Reporting! 

The Yale Program on Climate Communication has a “Campus Consortium Partnership" with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting in order to nurture quality journalism on climate change, one of the most urgent issues of our time.  The partnership offers Yale students support and training to undertake their own international reporting projects focused on global warming, and brings journalists reporting on the subject to campus to present their work and meet with students.

We offer one climate reporting fellowship per summer to Yale students to pursue international reporting projects. Reporting that is U.S.-based but also has global impact will also be considered. Pulitzer Center staff and journalists advise the student throughout the process. Final projects are featured on the Pulitzer Center website. Students are often successful in placing their work in other news-media outlets as well (among them, NPR's Goats and Soda, Foreign Affairs, The Washington Post, Global Health Now, Huff Post, News Deeply, Nautilus, Mongabay, and The Atlantic). Reporting fellows produce a long form article and/or a multimedia piece, a photo essay, and field note. Specific requirements to be arranged with Pulitzer Center staff. The amount of the fellowship offered is $3,000. In order to cover all costs associated with travel and reporting, the fellowship is often combined with other support.

If you are a current Yale student (undergrad or grad) you are eligible for the climate reporting fellowship. Students graduating in 2020 are eligible as well. There is more information HERE about past climate reporting fellows and HERE about the fellowship in general.

Please complete this application and submit it by midnight, Friday, March 6, 2020.  You will be notified by March 25th.
