Description

Description

The Pulitzer Center, a nonprofit organization that supports independent global journalism, is now accepting reporting fellowship applications for its Rainforest Investigations Network (RIN).

 

The network is a major new initiative that seeks to harness investigative reporting and cross-border collaboration to tackle stories at the intersection of climate change, corruption, and governance in the world’s three main tropical rainforest regions: Amazon, Congo Basin, and Southeast Asia.

Eligibilities

Eligibilities

Who is eligible to apply?

 

  • Experienced investigative journalists with a proven track record based in the Amazon (three  fellowships), Congo Basin (three fellowships), and Southeast Asia (three fellowships) regions. An additional fellowship will go to a journalist working at a global media outlet.
  • Reporters based in countries neighboring the three main tropical rainforest regions—Amazon, Congo Basin and Southeast Asia—may also apply but will need to focus their reporting during the fellowship on deforestation/supply chain stories related to these regions.
  • Staff or freelance journalists working on a wide range of platforms including print, radio, video, and multimedia. Freelance reporters will need to have the support of a local newsroom that agrees to host them and publish the work they produce during the fellowship.
  • Team players with the experience and/or ability to work collaboratively across newsrooms and borders.
  • Reporters with a deep understanding of the scientific, environmental, social, legal, political, and commercial forces at play in deforestation and forest degradation around the world—and why this issue matters to our global well-being.
  • Reporters willing to participate in outreach activities related to their investigations, such as events at schools and universities

Benefits

Benefits
  • The opportunity to work on impactful investigations that are time-consuming and costly.
  • A global network of top-notch investigative reporters who will aid your investigations and complement your skills.
  • Access to data and documents as well as the opportunity to sharpen your data skills with support from the Pulitzer Center’s tech team.
  • The opportunity to work on stories that transcend your country and region and can achieve true global impact.
  • A community of like-minded colleagues that will continue beyond your fellowship.
  • The possibility of renewing your fellowship for an additional one or two years based on performance.
  • Salaries commensurate with experience.

 

The Rainforest Investigations Network will be coordinated by award-winning Brazilian journalist Gustavo Faleiros, a pioneer of rainforest accountability reporting and founder of the data journalism outlet InfoAmazonia.
