Deadline: 15 March 2016
UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism is seeking applications for its 11th Hour Food and Farming Journalism Fellowship Program to provide an opportunity to early and mid career journalists to report ambitious long form stories on the full range of subjects under the rubric of food systems.
The program is 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.
UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism is looking for the leaders of the next generation of journalists—strongly motivated individuals with reverence for truth, a hunger to discover and to inform, a deep regard for thorough analysis, and an ardent embrace of civic engagement.
