DEADLINE: Rita Allen Fellowship for Science Communication

Event Date: 
June 30, 2017

The Rita Allen Foundation and WGBH Boston are pleased to announce the Rita Allen Fellowship for Science Communication. This new program will provide a year's support for one fellow to study the field of science media, experiment with successful media formats and work to expand science literacy in the general public.  The fellow will embed at WGBH, one of the pre-eminent science media producers in the US and home to the flagship public media science series NOVA.

The goal of the Rita Allen Fellowship, which begins in January 2018, is to identify ways to expand how and to whom science news and information are communicated.  It also aims to discover new information by experimenting with best practices that will provide all science media producers with tools to reach new audiences more effectively. 

The Fellow will receive a stipend of $82,000 plus benefits, for the year. He/she will live in or move to the Boston area and have office space at WGBH's studios. Deadline to apply is Jun 30, 2017.
