Climate Economics Journalism Fellowship

Deadline Date: May 31, 2024

 Donor Name: NYU Stern

 Grant Size: $1000 to $10,000

The NYU Stern Climate Economics Journalism Fellowship will bring a group of journalists to NYU Stern’s Greenwich Village campus to learn from globally recognized experts in the emerging field of climate economics.

The Climate change is transforming the economy as quickly and profoundly as it is reshaping the planet. For journalists who want to deepen their climate coverage, understanding these sometimes cryptic economic and financial shifts is as important as understanding the science and politics behind climate change.


  • The sessions cover the fundamental economics and latest trends in climate economics. Prior training in economics is not required. Topics include:
    • How Climate Change is Roiling the Housing and Insurance Markets
    • Climate Risks to Financial Stability
    • How Climate Change is Altering Corporate Decision Making
    • The Economics of Climate Regulation + Carbon Markets
    • Biodiversity Loss as an Emerging Economic Risk
    • The Fast-Changing Economics of Renewable Energy and Electric Vehicles
    • Emerging Regulatory and Legislative Trends in Climate Finance and Economics

Funding Information

  • All the costs of operating the program including all meals will be borne by NYU Stern. In addition, Fellows admitted to the program 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.

What can I expect?

  • A two-day in-person series of academic and social events at NYU Stern’s Greenwich Village campus. The program is designed for journalists interested in better understanding the interactions between climate change, financial markets, and the broader economy. Taught by NYU faculty, the Fellowship aims to provide participants with both the fundamental factors and latest trends in climate economics and finance.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applications are open to and welcome from all journalists (both reporters and editors, and including freelancers) interested in covering the interface between climate and the economy. While aspects of the course have a focus on U.S. policies and institutions, they also welcome applications from journalists based outside the United States.
