Annual Workshop for Journalists
Eligibility & Application
Journalists from all media who want to improve their skills in environmental reporting and gain a thorough understanding of how scientific research is conducted are invited to apply for a Metcalf Institute fellowship. The 14th Annual Science Immersion Workshop for Journalists will focus on global change in coastal ecosystems.
The 2012 Metcalf fellowship program will support up to ten early- to mid-career journalists with a demonstrated interest in science and environmental reporting and a desire to learn about basic science through field and lab experiences. Up to two of these fellowships are available to non-U.S. citizens. Non-U.S. applicants must include a written statement indicating that they have full travel funds and can obtain the appropriate visa.
A fellowship provides room, board, tuition, and up to US$500 in travel support (paid as a reimbursement after the program) to attend a six-day workshop held at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography, one of the world's leading marine research institutions, in Narragansett, Rhode Island.
The postmark deadline for applications for the 2012 Annual Science Immersion Workshop for Journalists was February 13, 2012.
