This fall, up to 15 journalists will gather in New York City for six days of study and discussion as part of the new Resilience Journalism Fellowship at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.

The program, scheduled for Oct. 22-27, will focus on the science of climate change and resilience — defined as a system’s capacity to absorb disturbance and still retain its basic function and structure.

Our Fellows won’t just spend the week sitting in a classroom. We’ll be kayaking in Jamaica Bay, riding bicycles on city streets, and searching across New York for solutions to some of the world’s most difficult environmental problems.

  • The Fellowship grant covers lodging, tuition and reasonable travel costs, along with most meals.
  • Fellows will be required to complete readings before arriving in New York and will be expected to be active participants in all discussions during the program.
  • Financial support for the Resilience Fellowship program is provided by The Rockefeller Foundation.
  • The application deadline for this inaugural fellowship is midnight on Aug. 31, 2017.

Apply For the Resilience Fellowship Program


  • The Resilience Fellowship is designed for mid-career journalists who have some background reporting on environmental issues as a staff reporter, producer, editor, or freelancer.  Applicants should have at least five years of full-time professional experience. In special cases, we will consider less experienced applicants who have demonstrated outstanding journalistic achievement.
  • We are looking for journalists interested in improving both the quality and quantity of their coverage of climate resilience issues. We want journalists who will be active throughout the Fellowship, willing to take on the challenges we present.

We will consider applicants who fall into either of the following categories:

  • Journalists who are employed by a news organization or freelance full-time as writers, producers, editors, photographers, or multimedia reporters.
  • Journalism innovators whose ideas have potential to alter the journalism landscape in a fundamental way.

We encourage applications from international journalists who are proficient in speaking and writing English.


All Fellows must arrive in New York by 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 22. Our first session will begin that evening.

Departures may be scheduled no earlier than 3 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 27.

While the grant cannot pay for additional days in New York, we encourage you to extend your trip in order to enjoy all the city has to offer. Fellows will not have time during the program to explore.
