Uproot Project Environmental Justice Fellowship 2022 for Journalists in the U.S. (up to $2,000)

The Uproot Project Environmental Justice Fellowship 2022 is now accepting applications.

They hope to bring the two together via the Uproot Project’s Environmental Justice Fellowship, which will assist underrepresented journalists in shedding light on under-reported themes.

This new fellowship will provide funds to seven journalists for a year to undertake reporting initiatives. Fellows’ projects should focus on environmental justice stories, emphasizing how climate catastrophe and other pressing environmental concerns are intricately linked to other kinds of inequality. These are the types of tales that are frequently left out of mainstream environmental journalism, and which The Uproot Project is committed to bringing to light.


Fellows will receive up to $2,000 to cover travel and other reporting fees, as well as Uproot’s assistance in placing their articles with a media source if desired.

This fellowship’s funds should go straight to supporting fellows’ reporting. The following are examples of such expenses:

  • Expenses for travel
  • Translation fees
  • Access to records
  • Data analysis
  • Visualization of data
