AAAS’ EurekAlert! has announced the five early-career science journalists who have earned 2021 EurekAlert! Fellowships for International Science Reporters.

Explorations of the science of the COVID-19 pandemic, investigations into creatures ranging from picas to orcas, and articles and videos about our warming world are just a few of the works of science reporting that have earned AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Awards in recent years.

The program is a way for researchers to explore a new career or improve their science communication skills, while also expanding the public audience for science news.

The 2021 Mass Media Fellows will apply their skills – and learn many more – as they spend the summer working as journalists in newsrooms around the country.

SciLine aims to bridge such professional and cultural differences, facilitating seamless connections between experts and journalists at a time when reliable scientific sources in the media are more important than ever.
