The Uproot Project believes that journalists of color bring critical and fresh perspectives to covering important environmental justice stories. With the Uproot Project’s Environmental Justice Fellowship, the Uproot Project want to bring the two together — to help underrepresented journalists shed light on undercovered topics.


This new fellowship will offer funding to seven journalists to pursue reporting projects over the course of a year.

Fellows will receive up to $2,000 to cover travel and other reporting expenses, and will also receive support from Uproot to place their stories with a media outlet.

Project Guidelines

Reporting projects should take an in-depth look at an environmental justice issue. Uproot Project is particularly interested in funding stories that are undercovered in the news media or poorly understood by the general public.

The fellowship is open to stories in any medium:

    • writing
    • audio
    • video
    • photography
    • some combination

Your reporting can take you anywhere, whether there’s a story you want to tell in your own backyard or across the world.

Fellows should provide a brief progress report at six months and a short summary of their experience at the end of their reporting process for Uproot to share.

Budget Guideline

The funding for this fellowship should directly support fellows’ reporting. Such costs may include:

  • Travel expenses
  • Translation fees
  • Records access
  • Data analysis
  • Data visualization

The majority of the funds must be used for reporting expenses, and funds should be spent within one year of fellowship selection.

Fellows should not spend a large share of their budget on new equipment. Funds cannot be used as reimbursement for reporting that has already been completed. The jury may allow other types of reimbursement in special cases.
