STEM Ambassadors: BSA Media Fellowships 2015
Applications for the British Science Association Media Fellowships 2015 are now open. To apply, you need to fill out the online form, and ask for a letter of support from your employer. The deadline for applications is the 3rd April.
The Media Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for practising scientists, clinicians and engineers to spend three to six weeks working at a media outlet, such as the Guardian, the Times, or the BBC. Fellows are mentored by professional journalists and learn how the media operates and reports on science, how to communicate with the media and to engage the wider public with science through the media.
After their media placement Fellows attend the British Science Festival in September, which provides an opportunity to gain valuable experience working alongside a range of media organisations from all over the UK in our dedicated Press Centre. The Festival also offers opportunities to learn from a wide range of public engagement activities and network with academics, journalists and science communicators.
Applications are open until 3 April 2015.
