Resilience Journalism Fellowship 2019 (Fully-funded to New York) – Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY invites applications for its Resilience Journalism Fellowship 2019. This winter up to 15 journalists will gather in New York City for six days of study and discussion.

The workshop will be an opportunity to learn about the science and practice of resilience while unfettered from the daily demands of journalism.

Resilience Journalism Fellowship 2019.

Understanding how systems respond to disturbance is becoming more critical every day. How do cities, states, and countries recover after a hurricane devastates communities? How can a region reduce the effects of climate change? Is it possible to manage natural resources such as fisheries in a way that allows for long-term health of the ecosystem?

The Resilience Journalism Fellowship gives reporters the tools they need to answer these and other important questions through a resilience lens.

They immerse their Fellows in the science behind resilience thinking through fieldwork – discussions with scientists, observation of resilience thinking as it relates to on-going projects, and meetings with business people and community members on the front lines of resilience work.

And they couple that fieldwork with classroom discussion on resilience economics, story framing and so much more.

The Fellowship will last from Sunday evening, Feb. 24 until midday on Friday, March 1. Fellows will be required to complete several readings before arriving in New York, and will be expected to be active participants in all discussions during the Fellowship.

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

  1. Journalists who are employed by a news organization, or those who freelance full-time. This category includes people who write, produce or edit news, whether for a legacy news organization or an internet publication. Also photojournalists and those working in multimedia are welcome to apply.
  2. Journalism innovators. These are people whose ideas have potential to alter the journalism landscape in a fundamental way. Innovators will be considered if their work and ideas might contribute to the fellowship in some fashion.

International Fellows.

International applications are not only welcome, they are encouraged; in their first Fellowship they had four people join them from outside the U.S. However all Fellows must have a strong grasp of English in order to participate fully, so we expect you to be proficient in speaking and writing English.

This program also involves a lot of discussion of scientific concepts, so all Fellows should have a solid understanding of basic science.

How to Apply Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY Resilience Journalism Fellowship 2019.

All fellows must be able to arrive in New York by 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 24. Their first session will begin that evening. Departures may be scheduled no earlier than 3 p.m. on Friday, March 1.
