Supporting the next generation of psychedelic journalists

Tim Ferriss Gift Creates Journalism Fellowships at Berkeley’s new Center for Science of Psychedelics

“As the field of psychedelics explodes, we’re going to need sophisticated journalism to provide the public with reliable information and the field with accountability.”

That’s where Tim Ferriss steps in.

His non-profit organization, the Saisei Foundation, just donated $800,000 over three years to UC Berkeley’s Center for the Science of Psychedelics (BCSP) to establish the Ferriss – UC Berkeley Psychedelic Journalism Fellowship.

The fellowship, which will be overseen by BCSP co-founder Michael Pollan, will support young journalists reporting on the psychedelics industry for mainstream news outlets. Journalists can apply to receive grants of up to $15,000 to investigate the science, policy, business and culture of psychedelics.
