The Open Notebook/Burroughs Wellcome Early Career Fellowship


"Every year, The Open Notebook offers a paid, part-time fellowship program for early-career science journalists. During the course of this fellowship, fellows work with a mentor to plan, report, and write articles for publication at The Open Notebook and become part of the TON editorial team. This ten-month program offers fellows the opportunity to explore their career interests and passions and to sharpen their skills as part of a talented, supportive, diverse community of past and present fellows and mentors. This fellowship is made possible through the generous support of the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, which has supported this program since 2012." This remote fellowship typically lasts for 10 months (part-time), from January through November. It includes a stipend of $7,500. Applications are typically accepted in September-October.
