MBL Science Journalism Fellowship

Two Great Fellowship Opportunities

The Science Journalism Program at the MBL, now in its 25th year, provides professional science journalists, editors, and broadcast journalists with a chance to forget about story deadlines and the latest breakthroughs, and instead immerse themselves in the process of basic biomedical and environmental research. Room, board, lab fees, and most travel are covered for accepted fellows.

The Choice Is Yours: The program offers science journalists the choice between two introductory intensive laboratory courses:
  • For Science/Health Journalists:
    Biomedical Hands-On Laboratory Course
    MBL, Woods Hole, Massachusetts
  • For Environmental Journalists:
    Environmental Hands-On Laboratory Course
    MBL, Woods Hole, Massachusetts
Financial support for all fellows includes the cost of the laboratory course (including additional weeks spent in Woods Hole or Antarctica), tuition, housing (for both unaccompanied fellows and those fellows accompanied by their families (Woods Hole only), transportation to and from Woods Hole, Alaska, or Antarctica (for the fellow only), and library fees. It is expected that fellows from other countries will pay their own travel expenses to the U.S.

Deadline to apply: March 1st 2011
