Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics
FASPE (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics), in collaboration with The Museum of Jewish Heritage—A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, is now accepting applications for a fellowship that uses the conduct of journalists in Nazi Germany as a launching point for an intensive two-week summer program on contemporary journalism ethics. Fellowships include an all-expense paid trip from New York to Berlin, Krakow, and Oświęcim (Auschwitz) where students will work with leading faculty to explore both journalism history and the ethical issues facing working journalists today. All program costs, including international and European travel, lodging, and food, are covered.
The 2014 program for FASPE Journalism will run from May 25 to June 5. To be eligible applicants must be enrolled in a graduate program or be working journalists who completed their undergraduate degrees between June 2009 and June 2013.
Completed applications must be received by January 6, 2014. Candidates of all religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

The Grist Fellowship Program
Want to grow as a journalist while absorbing a universe of green knowledge? Apply to be a fellow at Grist. We are an independent nonprofit media organization that shapes the country’s environmental conversations, making green second nature for our monthly audience of 1,500,000 and growing. We reach the next generation by cutting through the noise to connect big issues like climate change to daily life, and by spotlighting the people and ideas leading us to a more sustainable future.
What is the Grist Fellowship Program?
The Grist Fellowship Program is an opportunity for early-career writers, editors, and others with diverse backgrounds to hone their journalistic skills at a national news outlet and deepen their knowledge of environmental issues. The fellowship offers exposure to the leading sustainability thinkers and theories of our time, real-world experience at a fast-paced news site, and access to the yummiest snacks this side of Saskatchewan.
What is expected of the fellows?
The fellows will make daily contributions to Grist’s editorial operations, including (but not limited to) research, reporting, story ideas, writing, and multimedia projects. We will encourage full participation in staff discussions and meetings, seek input on issues large and small, and support special projects.
What are the details?
Fellows work full-time out of Grist’s Seattle office. Fellows must make a six-month commitment. After six months, the fellowship will be renewable once by mutual agreement between the fellow and Grist. The fellowship pays $2,250 per month.
Who should apply?
Curious, self-motivated, hard-working individuals who want to raise the bar for environmental journalism and who have a profound interest in growing as a storyteller. We are looking for writers, reporters, and editors, as well as content creators in new media areas such as video, social media, data visualization, animation, and multimedia programming. Candidates are most likely college graduates or j-school grads with some experience in the field. You don’t need a ton of experience, but you do need solid skills and a sense of humor. Help us put the ‘ha’ in climate change! (Even better: Help us come up with a better kicker.)
Where do I apply?
For fellowships that begin in February 2014, please submit applications by November 15, 2013.
No phone calls, please and thank you.
Grist is an equal-opportunity employer.
