ASA/AAAS Mass Media Fellowship Applications Open

1 December 2020 No Comment

Applications for the ASA/AAAS Mass Media Fellowship will be accepted until January 1, 2021. Successful candidates will spend 10 weeks next summer working with journalists at a TV, radio, magazine, or newspaper outlet putting their statistics skills to use.

“One of the most valuable aspects of this work was that, in writing about statistics, I became introspective about my own academic research,” wrote Irineo Cabreros, a 2018 mass media fellow. “My experience this summer hooked me. I left Slate flush with inspiration for future projects and hungry to keep going. I began the summer as a dabbler in science communication. Now, I don’t think I can imagine a future without journalism being part of it.”

Embedded in media outlets, fellows learn how to communicate scientific topics in clear and engaging ways, better understand how the media covers science, and build a professional network of scientists and journalists. In its 45-year history, the program has supported more than 700 fellows.
