During the four-week fellowship, fellows will produce live coverage of the event, develop sources and ideas and receive training and mentorship from veteran correspondents. Fellows also will become eligible for additional climate change reporting opportunities with GroundTruth that will continue through 2018. The GroundTruth Project is accepting applications from eligible candidates from any country as the project is dedicated to training a new generation of international correspondents in the digital age and to add increased knowledge and understanding on issues of social justice including human rights, freedom of expression, emerging democracies, the environment, religious affairs and global health.
To apply to be one of The GroundTruth Project’s 2015 climate change reporting fellows, applicants need to fill an online application form available on the GroundTruth website. The closing date for applications is 22 September 2015.
GroundTruth is also looking for experienced editors to lead the project. Applicants need to have at least three years experience in reporting and editing with a particular focus on the environment. More information can be found on the GroundTruth website.
The deadline to submit an application to be an editor is October 15, 2015.
