Applications call for Sue Palminteri WildTech Reporting Fellowship 2020.

Mongabay.org offers an exciting fellowship opportunity. This opportunity primarily involves writing stories that cover conservation technology-related research for our affiliated news site – Mongabay.com. Our fellow will have the opportunity to develop their writing skills and have their news stories be published on our renowned website which boasts over two million global readers every month. This is a part-time, six-month opportunity supported by a special fund created in the memory of Sue Palminteri.


The WildTech Reporting Fellow will be writing roughly six news stories and six interviews on a variety of conservation technology topics over a course of a six-month commitment. Topics will be assigned to the fellow by one of Mongabay editors. The Mongabay fellow will work closely with Mongabay journalists and receive writing guidelines and feedback on their news stories before publication, receive a deeper understanding of journalistic programs and processes at Mongabay, and receive one-on-one training and mentorship from the editors who work with the fellow.

This is a part-time program. The Fellow will be working virtually (at home or wherever they feel most productive) with set deadlines to be met. We are flexible on how many hours per week the fellow is able to work. Some weeks could require more hours than others depending on the editorial stage of each assignment; the Fellow has to be flexible and plan accordingly.


The candidates of Sue Palminteri WildTech Reporting Fellowship will receive a $5,000 honorarium for the duration of the program.
