Complex Systems Summer School Journalism Fellowship

Application deadline: March 3, 2024

Santa Fe Institute (SFI) offers a journalism fellowship for accomplished reporters. National and international journalists with a demonstrated interest in and record of reporting about matters related to complex systems are encouraged to apply for this residential fellowship in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The premise of the fellowship is to offer journalists an opportunity to explore complex systems science more deeply by attending SFI’s iconic four-week Complex Systems Summer School (CSSS). During their residency in Santa Fe, two selected journalists will learn alongside graduate students, postdoctoral scientists, and professionals through an intensive series of lectures and labs taught by world-renowned faculty. The Fellow will have the opportunity to interact with top scientists collaborating across disciplines at the Santa Fe Institute and will be encouraged to contribute to a group project at the Complex Systems Summer School. Armed with a new appreciation for the history of and trends in complex systems science, and the state and limitations of current scientific theory, the Fellows then return to their day-to-day reporting better prepared to convey the interrelatedness of solutions to the complex problems we face.
