AAAS Mass Media Science and Engineering Fellows Program

The AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellowship seeks to increase communication skills in student scientists. From grant writing to interaction with their community, these skills will benefit a student's career path and increase public understanding of science and technology.


The Fellowship places senior undergraduate and graduate science, engineering and mathematics students at media sites nationwide to work as science reporters for ten weeks. By exposing reporters and editors to the expertise of student scientists, while also training those same students in the nuances of journalism, the program can improve the quality of information that is disseminated.

To apply candidates must be either undergraduates in their senior year or graduate students who are no more than one year past graduation or defense of their thesis. A candidate's area of study must be in the natural, physical, health, engineering, computer or social sciences, or mathematics to apply. Students enrolled in English, journalism or science journalism programs are not eligible for this fellowship.

AAAS selects 15 to 20 Fellows each summer. There is a $5,000 stipend plus travel expenses. The deadline is January 15th. For more information or to download the application form, please visit our website.
