June 8-13, 2008: Environmental reporting workshop

Reporting on the environment, public policy, and even business, often requires journalists to explain complex scientific research and its implications. The Metcalf Institute for Marine and Environmental reporting is recruiting journalists for the Tenth Annual Science Immersion Workshop for Journalists, June 8-13, 2008. The Institute offers ten fellowships for early to mid-career journalists to attend a weeklong science immersion workshop at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography. Participants work in the field and lab, attend lectures and discussions by leading writers and researchers, and participate in journalism clinics. Each fellowship provides tuition, room and board, and limited travel support. Additional information and applications are available at http://www.metcalfinstitute.org.
