DEADLINE: EGU Science Journalism Fellowship

Event Date: 
December 6, 2018

The European Geosciences Union (EGU) is accepting applications for its annual Science Journalism Fellowship competition. The fellowships enable journalists to follow scientists on location to report on ongoing research in the Earth, planetary or space sciences. Successful applicants receive up to €5000 to cover expenses related to their projects. The deadline for applications is Dec 6, 2018.

Rather than awarding a published piece of science reporting, EGU Science Journalism Fellowships distinguish themselves from other science journalism prizes by awarding innovative proposals to report on geoscientific research not yet in the public sphere. The award offers journalists the opportunity to follow geoscientists on location and to develop an in-depth understanding of their research questions, approaches, findings and motivation. The aim of the fellowship is to promote excellence in geoscience reporting.
