The Pulitzer Center Rainforest Investigations Network (RIN) is accepting applications for its next cohort of investigative environmental journalists.
Fellows will spend one year focusing on projects that tackle the intersection of climate change, corruption, and governance in the world’s three main tropical rainforest regions: Amazon, Congo Basin, and Southeast Asia.
This year, we are actively seeking investigations that include a cross-border approach. We also have two seats reserved for fellowships dedicated to investigations focused on transparency and governance.
Fellows will receive data and research training, support on communication and engagement, and a close mentoring relationship from the Pulitzer Center. They will work closely with their co-Fellows around the world, benefiting from one another’s skills and diverse perspectives.
We are organizing a virtual meeting where editors and RIN members will discuss the details of the current call for proposals, open now until December 20, 2023.
During the meeting, you can ask what the requirements are to submit an application, what type of investigations the jury values, and what other elements are taken into account during the selection of RIN Fellows.
Former RIN Fellow Manuela Andreoni will also present an example of her own work realized during her time with the 2021 cohort.
