Leonard N. Stern School of Business Invites Entries for Climate Economics Journalism Fellowship

Johannes Stroebel, Director, NYU Stern Climate Finance Initiative

The New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business is inviting entries from journalists, including reporters, editors, and freelancers from around the world interested in covering the interface between climate and the economy to apply for its Climate Economics Journalism Fellowship.

The programme will gather a group of journalists at the NYU Stern’s Greenwich Village campus in New York to learn from globally recognized experts in the emerging field of climate economics.

Fellows will discuss the fundamental factors and latest trends in climate economics and finance including such topics as: how climate change is altering corporate decision-making; and the economics of climate regulation + carbon markets.

The programme helps journalists who want to deepen their climate coverage to understand the sometimes cryptic economic and financial shifts as they are important as understanding the science and politics behind climate change.

The Fellowship will begin with a two-day, in-person series of academic and social events at NYU Stern’s Greenwich Village campus. Taught by NYU faculty, the Fellowship aims to equip participants with both the fundamental factors and the latest trends in climate economics and finance.

The Fellowship covers all costs associated with participating in the programme, including all meals, which will be covered by NYU Stern. Additionally, Fellows admitted to the programme who reside outside the New York Metro Area will receive a $2,000 stipend to cover travel and accommodation costs. Those residing inside the New York Metro Area will receive a $1,000 stipend.

While certain aspects of the course focus on U.S. policies and institutions, they also welcome applications from journalists based outside the United States.

Submission of applications closes on May 31, 2024.
