  • Scholarship Description
  • The Scripps Howard Foundation constantly seeks ways to help career journalists fulfill their passion for learning. The Ted Scripps Fellowships in Environmental Journalism program exposes working journalists to the leading edge of environmental thinking, and ultimately, enriches the public's understanding of this vital subject.

    Named after the late Ted Scripps, the youngest grandson of E.W. Scripps, the one-year, non-degree academic fellowships blend classroom and field training to help environmental journalists broaden their professional skills. As many as five fellows are funded each year, largely through a donation by Ted's daughter, Cindy Scripps Leising.

    The school's Center for Environmental Journalism, the first of its kind in the nation, was founded in 1992 under the direction of associate professor Len Ackland, who coordinates the program. The fellows, selected in a national search, receive a stipend and participate in a wide range of economic, scientific, social and political courses to deepen their knowledge of environmental issues.

    To be eligible, an applicant must be a U.S. citizen, have a minimum of five years full-time professional journalism experience and have completed an undergraduate degree. Applicants may include general assignment reporters, editors, producers, environmental reporters, full-time freelancers, and photojournalists. Prior experience in covering the environment is not required.
