Congratulations to Kate Gammon, ’07, for being selected as a 2022-2023 Religion and Environment Story Project (RESP) Fellow. Hosted by Boston University, the fellowship offers training for journalists, educators, and public-facing scholars who are interested in the intersection between religion and the environment. In addition to receiving on-the-job training, fellows also meet for seminars “that will include wide-ranging discussions on religion, spirituality, the environment, climate change, and journalism.” Fellows also receive a small stipend and commit to producing at least one story for a general audience.

Kate’s bylines have appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, WIRED, The Guardian, Undark, Popular Science, MIT Technology Review, Nature, and Hakai Magazine, among other outlets. In years past, she has also landed fellowships through the Society for Environmental Journalists, Columbia University, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the National Press Foundation, and others.

Kate isn’t the only GPSW grad that’s been an RESP fellow. Kendra Pierre-Louis, ’16’, also made the list in 2021. Congratulations, Kate. We can’t wait to see the projects that are yet to come.
