English Language Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellowship

2019 application available

The AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellowship places science, engineering, and mathematics students and postdocs at media organizations nationwide. They have worked as reporters, editors, researchers, and production assistants at media outlets that include the Los Angeles Times, WIRED, National Public Radio, National Geographic, and Scientific American.

The Mass Media Science & Engineering 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 participant’s career path while increasing the public’s understanding of science and technology. For additional information about the program visit

“It’s not an exaggeration to say that I wouldn’t be where I am today without the [Mass Media Fellowship].”
