Metcalf Institute for Marine & Environmental Reporting Invites Journalists to Apply for Science Immersion Workshop
The Metcalf Institute for Marine & Environmental Reporting is accepting applications for its fifteenth annual Science Immersion Workshop for Journalists, the theme of which this year is global change in coastal ecosystems.
The workshop, which runs from June 9 through June 14 at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography, is a professional development experience that gives journalists an opportunity to explore and understand the effects of global change in coastal ecosystems, using Narragansett Bay as a living laboratory. The fellowship explores scientific research methods as well as the principles and ethics that guide scientific inquiry. Journalists also will learn how to interpret scientific publications and sharpen their investigative reporting skills.
Early to mid-career journalists from all media with a demonstrated interest in science and environmental reporting and a desire to learn about basic science through field and lab work are invited to apply.
The fellowship includes room, board, tuition, and up to $500 to support travel. Non-U.S. applicants must include a written statement indicating that they can secure full travel funds and obtain the appropriate visa.
Metcalf also offers seminars and workshops for journalists.
