Grist Fellowship Programme 2018 for Early-Career Journalists


The justice fellow can elect to work out of Grist’s Seattle office or work remotely. If you work remotely, you will be encouraged to report on stories in your home community. Fellow must make a six-month commitment. The fellowship pays $2,750 per month.

In special cases, the fellowship will be renewable once by mutual agreement between the fellow and Grist. Renewal candidates will be considered alongside the applicant pool for the next fellowship cycle.

3. Video Fellow

Are you a curious, self-motivated, hard-working individual who wants to grow as a multimedia journalist and storyteller? The Grist video fellowship may be the opportunity for you.

The video fellow will work alongside Grist’s award-worthy video team to produce explainer videos, shareable short videos, and longer-term projects. You will be expected to produce one explainer video a month and two short-form videos a month, and to assist on the video team with weekly production. You will lead multimedia experiments, collaborate with their social media manager, and push Grist to innovate new ways to tell stories. You will also identify a special project to produce in collaboration with others on the team. They will encourage your full participation in staff discussions and meetings, seek your input on issues large and small, and suggest the occasional one-block stroll to the picturesque Seattle waterfront.
