Metcalf Institute for Marine and Environmental Reporting, Rhode Island, United States (US), offers fellowships for early- to mid-career journalists to attend the week-long Annual Science Immersion Workshop.
Focusing on global change in coastal ecosystems, Fellows will participate in fieldwork in and around Narragansett Bay and lab exercises at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography.
The programme also features journalism sessions and lectures by leading scientists and policy makers on major environmental topics of the day.
The program teams journalists with scientists and regulatory experts to work in the field and lab and consider research and policy on marine and coastal environmental issues.
Fellows gain a better understanding of environmental science research methods, cultivate scientific sources, and sharpen reporting skills.
Fellows will explore the value of different energy sources in mitigating climate change and how these options affect surrounding environments.
Fellowships are available to working journalists in all media.
A fellowship provides tuition, room, board, and travel support for attendance in the full program week.
