The Center for Environmental Journalism is proud to welcome its 26th class of Ted Scripps Fellows in Environmental Journalism.

The fellowship is named after the late Edward (Ted) Scripps, grandson of the founder of Scripps Howard and a journalist who cared deeply about the environment. Since 1997, journalists have come to the University of Colorado Boulder to spend two semesters deepening their knowledge of the environment through courses, weekly seminars, field trips and independent study.

This year’s class of fellows is arriving with extensive reporting experience across a range of media platforms, including international outlets specializing in audio storytelling, digital writing and photojournalism. The journalists will focus their fellowships on specific areas of study, tackling critical questions concerning the intersection of climate change and religion, the economy and environment, climate change impacts on migration in the Americas and the environmental impacts of space travel.

I'm thrilled to welcome the 2022–23 class of Ted Scripps fellows,” said Hillary Rosner, CEJ assistant director and a former Scripps fellow. “This year’s impressive group of journalists comes with a range of experience across print, photography and multimedia, and their interests span from finance to ecology to religion to migration. I’m excited for a great year with them.”
