Journalists from the Middle East and Africa can apply for this fellowship.

The Knight Science Journalism Program “KSJ” at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is seeking applications for the Fellowship for Advancing Science Journalism in Africa and the Middle East.

The one-semester fellowship, sponsored by Springer Nature, was created in honor of the Egyptian science journalist, Mohammed Yahia, who died in 2023.

The program will offer a US$40,000 stipend for the fellowship period from Aug. 16 to Dec. 31. KSJ will also cover the fellow’s health insurance and a US$5,000 housing stipend to help with relocation costs.

Applicants with at least three years of experience in covering science, health, and the environment are encouraged to apply. 

The deadline for applications is March 1.
