Mongabay extends grant application deadline to Sept. 10 for young environmental journalists

"The climate crisis, the accelerated loss of forests, the threats against Indigenous communities that protect diverse ecosystems and the overexploitation of the seas are some of the major issues that need to be covered with urgency and continuity. However, young journalists interested in tackling these issues in Latin America find it difficult to find a space where they can specialize and gain experience. Even more difficult is access to media outlets where they can publish their first stories.

In response to this situation, Mongabay is launching the Y.Eva Tan Environmental Journalism Fellowship, a program that provides opportunities for young journalists from tropical biodiversity hotspot countries to report on critical environmental issues, while receiving valuable training and gaining experience to advance their journalism careers.

The Y. Eva Tan Environmental Journalism Fellowship will benefit 12 fellows a year: six for the global team reporting in English and six for the team in Latin America publishing in Spanish."
