Food and Farming Journalism Fellowship - call for applications (Berkeley)

by UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism


Hey freelance journalists! Check out this fellowship opportunity offered down in the states (you can apply from Canada -- see their FAQs).

Re-posted from: http://journalism.berkeley.edu/projects/foodfellows/

The UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism is offering eight $10,000 postgraduate Food and Farming Journalism Fellowships in a new program established by Michael Pollan, the John S. and James L. Knight Professor of Journalism at UC Berkeley. The fellowship, a project of the Knight Center in Science and Environmental Journalism, is supported by a grant from The 11th Hour Project, a program of The Schmidt Family Foundation. Aimed at early and mid career journalists, the Fellowship presents an opportunity to report ambitious long form stories on the full range of subjects under the rubric of food systems: agricultural and nutritional policy, the food industry, food science, technology and culture, rural and urban farming, agriculture and the environment (including climate change), global trade and supply chains, consolidation and securitization of the food system and public health as it relates to food and farming.

In 2014 we will award eight journalists $10,000 to travel and report these stories.

In 2014, the fellowship will be open to both print and radio journalists; in future years, it will expand to include multi-media and video journalists. We will give preference to U.S. focused stories, but will also consider international stories with a strong U.S. angle or connection.

Online applications are due March 1, 2014, and should include a one-page pitch with a clearly defined story idea, not just a subject. The pitch should reflect some preliminary research, providing a clear sense of place, characters, narrative and reporting strategy. The application also requires a CV, two letters of recommendation and published clips. We will announce this year’s fellows by April 15, 2014.

It is different. Food and

It is different. Food and farming are two serious issues. I think this is really a great thing. Thank you for this good timely update.
