UC Berkeley 11th Hour Food and Farming Journalism Fellowship 2022 (Up to $10,000)
Deadline: March 15, 2022
Applications are open for the UC Berkeley 11th Hour Food and Farming Journalism Fellowship 2022. The UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism offers ten postgraduate Food and Farming Journalism Fellowships in a program established by Michael Pollan, the John S. and James L. Knight Professor of Journalism at UC Berkeley and Malia Wollan, the fellowship’s director.
Aimed at early and mid career journalists, the fellowship presents an opportunity to report ambitious long form print and audio 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, food and climate change, global trade and supply chains, consolidation and securitization of the food system and public health as it relates to food and farming.
- The fellowship offers $10,000 to ten selected fellows.
- Open to print and audio journalists. International journalists can apply but UC Berkeley cannot assist with visas or residency.
- They 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 15, 2022, and should include a one-page pitch with a clearly defined story idea, not just a subject. The pitch should reflect some preliminary reporting, providing a clear sense of place, characters, and narrative. The application also requires a resume, two letters of recommendation and published clips.
