Mass Media Fellowship Program
10-Week Summer Program!
In affiliation with the popular AAAS program, APS will sponsor two ten-week fellowships for physics students to work full-time over the summer as reporters, researchers, and production assistants in mass media organizations nationwide.
The program is meant to improve public understanding and appreciation of science and technology and to sharpen the ability of the fellows to communicate complex technical issues to non-specialists.
Priority will be given to graduate students in physics, or a closely related field, although applications also will be considered from outstanding undergraduates and postdoctoral researchers. Applicants should possess outstanding written and oral communication skills and a strong interest in learning about the media.
Remuneration is $4,500, plus a travel allowance of up to $1,000.
Following an intensive three-day orientation in early June at the AAAS in Washington DC, winning candidates will work full-time through mid-August.
