GGWash’s Urbanist Journalism Fellowship
Greater Greater Washington's Urbanist Journalism Fellowship is a part-time, paid position for local budding journalism professionals who are interested in the forces that shape how Washington grows and develops. Fellows primarily report and write stories focused on equity and urban resilience. The fellowship is made possible with the support of the Island Press Urban Resilience Project and the Meyer Foundation.
At the end of 2017, DCist was abruptly shut down and the future of Washington City Paper looked uncertain. With dwindling opportunities for local journalists, we decided to launch this fellowship to help them build their careers, as well as gain more of a background in urbanism and provide our readers with an even richer array of stories. We also specifically wanted to lift up voices and perspectives that aren't as prevalent on the site.
We offer two cohorts of fellows each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. Interested in becoming a fellow? We'll post the announcement on our website, via the daily email, and on Twitter and Facebook when fellowship applications open.
