Nearly 30 years after the end of the cold war and ‘the end of history,’ nuclear weapons are in the cross hairs again. Arms control is faltering, weapons modernisation is about to break the bank and new technologies are rocking the foundations of nuclear stability. Where’s the story?

Atomic Reporters is looking for reporters who are interested in breaking the nuclear soil and probing the current nuclear tumult. We are particularly interested in how digital technologies and information streams in crisis situations interact with nuclear tensions and risk
. Other possible story ideas could include:

  • Risks and dangers of new and emerging technologies on nuclear stability
  • Information warfare
  • Manipulation of social media
  • Using online tools to verify information
  • The role of journalists in reducing panic in an event such as the Hawaii false alert

We are also open to new ideas!

The “This Is Not a Drill” investigative reporting fellowships are organized by Atomic Reporters in partnership with the Stanley Foundation
. Atomic Reporters will administer the fellowships with funding from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. Each fellowship will be capped at US $5,000 and will cover reporting costs such as travel, accommodation, food, visas, translator fees, and other miscellaneous costs. Individuals as well as teams can apply for a fellowship.

To be eligible for the fellowships, applicants must:

  • Be a working journalist, staff or freelance, from or representing an established media outlet based in the Americas, Asia, or Europe;

  • Present a story idea that can be investigated and reported with a budget of up to $5000 (budgets can be less);

  • Submit a budget outlining estimated costs for proposed reporting during the fellowship (for teams, specify how each team member will use the funds);

  • Provide a letter of support from an editor, producer, or supervisor who can confirm your track record in getting your material published (workshop participants applying for fellowships do not need to resubmit a letter of support); and

  • Be prepared, if awarded a fellowship, to sign a funding agreement with the fellowship administrator (Atomic Reporters) in advance of any distribution of funds.

The deadline for applications is February 28 – send your applications!

Atomic Reporters is an independent, non-profit, incorporated in Canada, operating as an officially recognized international NGO from Austria, providing substantive and non-partisan information to journalists about nuclear science and technology.
