Inside Climate News’ summer 2024 class of fellows will report from locations across the country as part of a program designed to hone its participants’ writing and reporting skills and deepen their subject matter expertise related to climate change and attribution science, environmental justice, renewable energy, and conservation and regulatory issues at the federal, state and local levels. 

“Our fellows program has become a big part of our culture and mission at Inside Climate News,” said Vernon Loeb, executive editor. “There’s nothing more important, or gratifying, than helping train and inspire the next generation of climate and environmental journalists. And we benefit tremendously from their energy and commitment to confronting the climate crisis.”

About This Story

Perhaps you noticed: This story, like all the news we publish, is free to read. That’s because Inside Climate News is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. We do not charge a subscription fee, lock our news behind a paywall, or clutter our website with ads. We make our news on climate and the environment freely available to you and anyone who wants it.

That’s not all. We also share our news for free with scores of other media organizations around the country. Many of them can’t afford to do environmental journalism of their own. We’ve built bureaus from coast to coast to report local stories, collaborate with local newsrooms and co-publish articles so that this vital work is shared as widely as possible.

Two of us launched ICN in 2007. Six years later we earned a Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting, and now we run the oldest and largest dedicated climate newsroom in the nation. We tell the story in all its complexity. We hold polluters accountable. We expose environmental injustice. We debunk misinformation. We scrutinize solutions and inspire action.

Donations from readers like you fund every aspect of what we do. If you don’t already, will you support our ongoing work, our reporting on the biggest crisis facing our planet, and help us reach even more readers in more places?

Please take a moment to make a tax-deductible donation. Every one of them makes a difference.

Thank you,
