The AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellows Program places science, engineering, and mathematics students at media organizations nationwide. Fellows have worked as reporters, editors, researchers, and production assistants at media outlets that include the Los Angeles Times, WIRED, National Public Radio, National Geographic Society, and Scientific American.
The AAAS Fellows use their academic training in the sciences as they research, write and report today's headlines, while sharpening their abilities to communicate complex scientific issues to the public. The Fellowship experience broadens the fellow's career path while increasing the public's understanding of science and technology. Completed applications must be submitted by midnight EST, 15 January 2017 to be considered.
Spanish Language Fellows Initiative
AAAS serves the growing Latino populations of the US by supporting science communication and education in the language of their communities. The recruitment of Spanish Language Fellows helps bring science news to the mainstream Spanish news outlets to share with Spanish speaking communities. AAAS is excited to be continuing the program for the 2017 Fellowship year.
