The Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) is pleased to open the call for applications for our second annual Energy Journalism Initiative (EJI) seminar.
Following the successful launch of EJI in Summer 2017, CGEP looks forward to continue fulfilling EJI's mission to promote quality journalism in the energy sector by educating and sensitizing journalists about the multiple disciplines at play in key energy debates and stories, including policy, markets, finance, climate change, technology and geopolitics.
June 12-15, 2018: A welcome dinner and three-day, all-expenses-paid, seminar conducted at the SIPA Center on Global Energy Policy in New York, with presentations from academic, business and public-sector experts. Participants will be expected to produce a brief report within six months of completion of the seminar that describes how the program enhanced their coverage and changed their approach to specific stories.
The Energy Journalism Initiative invites applications from print, online and broadcast journalists who are relatively new to covering energy: with five or fewer years of experience on the beat. In particular, the Initiative will look for reporters whose coverage appears in national and local newspapers, wire services, trade press, and internet/new-media outlets.
The deadline for applications to participate in the Initiative is February 2, 2018, and participants will be selected by the end of April.
The Energy Journalism Initiative is made possible with generous support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and CGEP Advisory Board Members Reid Hoffman and Jim Rogers.
