Applications are open for Sue Palminteri WildTech Reporting Fellowship 2021. With this program, Mongabay is developing a fellowship in Sue’s name that would honor her interest in conservation, technology, and journalism by providing opportunities for students and new journalists to gain experience in conservation technology and writing.

The Sue Palminteri WildTech Reporting 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 (July-December 2021). Topics will be assigned to our fellow by one of our 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.

Program Schedule

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; our Fellow has to be flexible and plan accordingly.


The WildTech Reporting Fellow will receive a $5,000 honorarium for the duration of the program. Thanks to the support of Conservation X-Labs, Mongabay readers, and Sue’s network of friends for that.
