Environmental Justice Investigative Journalism Fellowship Application
Are you an early-career Seattle-based journalist who focuses on communities of color and immigrant communities? Apply today to be part of our Environmental Justice Investigative Fellowship.
Fellows will receive 10 weeks of training and reporting in investigative journalism techniques and one-on-one mentorship from an experienced journalist. Each fellow will each be tasked with developing and completing an investigative story based on environmental justice story ideas from POC and immigrant communities. These stories will be presented at a symposium at the end of the program. Fellows will receive a stipend of up to $2,000 for their participation and completion of the program.
We would like to train people from immigrant and POC communities in investigative environmental reporting so that they can uncover stories happening in these often underrepresented communities. This program is necessary because there is a need to tell stories about how POC and immigrant communities are often adversely affected by environmental issues, and not well represented in media or at the legislative levels to address them.
If you have an environmental justice story in your community, please let us know about it by emailing
The ideal candidate will have some experience creating media and can provide samples of work in writing, podcasts, photography or video.
The classes will be held from Nov. 18 to Jan. 27 at the Northwest Film Forum. In general, workshop periods will be 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Mondays.
If you are interested, please fill out the following form by Nov. 8.
