I found out about this today from my local Urban Agricultural Alliance and thought I’d do a quick post to spread the word. The UC Berkeley School of Journalism is offering a Food Fellowship, deadline for application is April 1st. The grant is $ 10,000, described below:

Aimed at early and mid-career journalists, the Fellowship presents an opportunity to report ambitious longform stories on the full range of subjects under the rubric of food systems: agricultural and nutritional policy, the food industry, food science, technology and culture, rural and urban farming, agriculture and the environment (including climate change), global trade and supply chains, consolidation and securitization of the food system and public health as it relates to food and farming. In 2013 we will award five, early and mid-career journalists $10,000 to travel and report these stories.

Here is the complete link to find out more:

    Thanks Amber – at a quick look this seems to also be open to non US students? Anyway I can follow that up from the day job desk and get around to others at the Uni here in Melbourne.

    It does say on their page that they “will give preference to U.S. focused stories, but will also consider international stories with a U.S. angle or connection.” So it sounds more like the content of the story being US based is important, but the student certainly can be from anywhere. It also seems to be for post-graduate work, mainly, but this is a new grant and perhaps an undergrad out there can sway.
