NSF Antarctic Reporting Opportunity

 

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is accepting written proposals from media professionals to report on research supported by NSF's Division of Polar Programs in Antarctica.

In particular, NSF is interested in proposals from national broadcast networks — or network affiliates in major markets — that reach significant non-English-language audiences in the United States or are engaged in partnerships that would allow them to reach such audiences.

NSF envisions selecting journalists to deploy whose reporting would help make the broadest possible viewing segment of the nation's television audience aware of the importance of science conducted in the polar regions, including the significance of that science to those who live in the Earth's temperate regions.

Deadline to apply: July 31, 2014.
