Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution offers a fellowship in Ocean Science Journalism. This fellowship is a one-week, residential experience open to professional science writers, producers, and editors working for print, broadcast, radio, and Internet media. Created in 2000, the program is designed to introduce science journalists to the interdisciplinary and wide-ranging fields of oceanography and ocean engineering.

Through seminars, laboratory visits, and brief field expeditions, Ocean Science Journalism Fellows gain access to new research findings and to fundamental background information in engineering, marine biology, geology and geophysics, marine chemistry and geochemistry, and physical oceanography. Topics range from harmful algal blooms to deep-sea hydrothermal vents; from seafloor earthquakes to ice-sheet dynamics; from the ocean's role in climate change to the human impact on fisheries and coastline change; from ocean instruments and observatories to underwater robots.

Eligibility criteria:

  1. The ideal candidates will have at least two years of writing, producing, or editing experience for a general-interest audience.
  2. Freelancers, book authors, and writers from nontraditional media may also be considered, but should be able to show a substantial portfolio of work.
  3. International journalists are welcome to apply. Please include English translations of your work samples.

Funding:

WHOI covers travel expenses for all fellows and room and board for one week.

Start and end date:

October 14-18, 2019.
