Summer fellowship for science journalists [Worldwide]

Posted on Mar 9, 2022 in Journalism Basics

Early-career science journalists pursuing summer internships with U.S.-based media outlets can apply for a fellowship.

The National Association of Science Writers (NASW) is offering the 2022 NASW Diversity Summer Fellowship. Three applicants from underrepresented groups—including racial and ethnic minorities, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and those with disabilities—will each receive a US$5,000 fellowship to supplement any stipends they receive from their summer employers.

An internship offer isn’t required at the time applications are submitted, but fellowship recipients will be asked to provide confirmation of an offer and its acceptance before funds are awarded.

Fellows will also receive a one-year complimentary membership to NASW.

The application deadline is April 1.
