PERC seeks applications for Media Fellowships from journalists to spend one week in Bozeman, Montana to learn about markets and environmental issues

Property and Environment Research Center (PERC) seeks application for the Media Fellowships from journalists (reporters, editors, broadcasters, producers, and others) who are interested in learning more about markets and environmental issues. Media Fellows get an opportunity to spend a minimum of a week in Bozeman, Montana, where they visit with PERC researchers and explore topics of interest.

The fellowship is aimed at helping journalists examine how property rights and markets can improve the environment. By visiting PERC, the journalists get the chance to understand the organization that has been the leading pioneer in discovering and analyzing these new approaches.

All media fellows are expected to give one seminar at PERC while in residence in Bozeman, subjects have varied widely, and write one op-ed piece for which a deadline will be set at the time of the fellowship.

The fellows will be given an honorarium of $4500 for a week’s stay from which travel, room and board must be taken. A sum of $500 will be withheld until the op-ed is delivered, and then the final check will be issued.

Timing for the fellowship is flexible but typically will coincide with a PERC program or activity.

In the past, journalists from BBC World, CNN, Forbes and even freelance journalists have attended the fellowship.

Eligibility Requirements

- Reporters, editorial writers, broadcasters, producers, and others working in the field of journalism, especially those covering the environment.

- Journalists who are skeptical but open-minded, as well as journalists who are already familiar with property rights and markets and their effect on the environment.

Deadline for submitting the application is June 30, 2011
