HBCU Science Journalism Fellowship


"This new fellowship, launched in 2024, is geared toward students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities who have an interest in science, health, and environmental reporting. The fellowship includes a one-week in-person summer camp and a one-year mentorship experience. A faculty of distinguished science journalists, a team of dedicated mentors, and editors from leading publications will provide the 10 selected fellows with intensive training, coaching, and opportunities to pitch science stories to national and regional outlets. Each fellow will receive a $5,000 stipend." Note: Applications have closed for the 2024-25 class of the HBCU Science Journalism Fellowship.
