High Country News

Climate Justice Fellow
High Country News, an award-winning magazine covering the communities and environment of the Western United States, seeks applicants for a climate justice fellowship. The fellowship is designed for early-career print and visual journalists interested in reporting on climate change and environmental justice, and will provide on-the-ground reporting opportunities and a chance to dive deep into important stories, as well as professional mentorship and career development.

The fellowship will run for six months, starting July 1 2021, and includes coaching and instruction from across HCN's editorial and art departments. Fellows will work with the leaders of our North, South, Indigenous Affairs and Reflections & Reviews desks to produce reported stories, analysis pieces and/or essays. Visual journalists will produce photo essays, multimedia projects and/or videos. Candidates will bring curiosity, fair-mindedness and a desire to share stories from and for communities and individuals who are disproportionately impacted by climate change, from Indigenous nations on the frontlines of sea-level rise to communities of color living in the shadow of oil and chemical facilities.
