Minority Science Writers Internship open [US]

Posted on Dec 07 in Specialized Topics

Aspiring science journalists can apply for a paid internship in Washington.

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) places minority students at its Science magazine for 10 weeks over the summer. Interns experience what it’s like to cover the scientific and technological issues that shape the global community.

The internship runs from June to mid-August. Interns are expected to contribute to the weekly news section, including bylined articles in the print and electronic news service.

The program is open to any minority undergraduate with a serious interest in science writing. Preference will be given to those students pursuing a degree in journalism. 

The deadline is Feb. 1, 2019.
