The UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism is offering eight $10,000 postgraduate 11th Hour Food and Farming Journalism Fellowships. The new program established by Michael Pollan, the John S. and James L. Knight Professor of Journalism at UC Berkeley, is open to both print and radio journalists to report ambitious long form stories under the rubric of foods systems.
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.
Reporting and writing will take place June-October, beginning with a four-day workshop with the 2014 fellow recipients and fellowship director, Michael Pollan.
Applications must include a one-page pitch with a clearly defined story idea reflecting preliminary research and providing a clear sense of place, characters, narrative and reporting strategy. Applications are due March 1, 2014; awards will be announced by May 1, 2014.
