Food and Farming Journalism Fellowships
UC Berkeley School of Journalism
Max Funding Amount
The UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism offers ten $10,000 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 is open to print and audio journalists. We will give preference to U.S. focused stories, but will also consider international stories with a strong U.S. angle or connection. The fellowship is only open to those who are not currently enrolled in school. If you will have graduated and completed your program by June, you are eligible to apply. Current students cannot be fellows but we encourage you to consider applying after graduation.
