We have a fellowship opportunity for those who have a cross-border and investigative climate story idea and are eager to work in a team setting. Your project idea could be investigative, or data-related, or both.

Deadline is 31 August 2023. We will contact you about your application by the end of September.

Applications are now closed. If you applied, you will hear from us soon.

Climate Arena Mentoring & Conference

If your story project is selected, you will be invited to join the Climate Arena journalism conference in Vienna (expenses paid) where you’ll attend a full-day workshop on 9 November 2023 and participate in the conference on 10 and 11 November. 

Following the conference, you will continue receiving mentoring and training right up to publication time. Being part of a cohort of 15 fellows, you will have the opportunity to set up teams, receive a working grant (up to €2000), and tailor-made mentorship to help you succeed in your investigative crossborder story.

Climate Arena Fellowship: How to apply

The first step to attending the conference and working on your story is to complete a short questionnaire. Before applying, please make sure you can be available on 9-10-11 November 2023 to travel to Vienna. This opportunity is for journalist in any stages of their career but we encourage early- and mid-career reporters to apply. We also particularly encourage applications from journalists whose backgrounds are underrepresented in the European media. You should be based in Europe to be able to benefit from the program. This is how we define Europe. If you have visa requirements, we will bear the visa cost and assist you with your application as much as we can.

This conference is organised by Arena for Journalism in Europe’s Climate Network.
