Applications call for AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellowship. This is a 10-week summer program places science, engineering, and mathematics students at media organizations nationwide. Moreover, fellows use their academic training as they research, write, and report today’s headlines, sharpening their abilities to communicate complex scientific issues to the public.
The AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellowship strengthens the connections between scientists and journalists by placing advanced undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate level scientists, engineers, and mathematicians at media organizations nationwide. Fellows work as journalists at media organizations such as National Public Radio, Los Angeles Times, WIRED, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and NOVA. The Mass Media Fellows use their academic training in the sciences as they research, write, and report today’s headlines, sharpening their abilities to communicate complex scientific issues to non-specialists. Participants come in knowing the importance of translating their work for the public, but they leave with the tools and the know-how to accomplish this important goal.
Fellows are provided a stipend of $7000 for the summer as well as travel expenses to and from AAAS and their sites. AAAS does not provide health care or employee benefits. AAAS does not provide housing or an additional housing stipend.
The AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellowship is open to international students who are already studying in the United States and who hold visas that allow them to receive payment for work during the summer. AAAS cannot assist in obtaining/retaining visas. The fellowship is also open to US citizens studying abroad as long as they can pay their way back into the US for the fellowship.
