Fellows will also participate in related workshops, conferences and offsite meetings and courses, where appropriate, and be at the forefront of timely scientific research.

The Arizona State University Fellowship in Transdisciplinary Science supports a journalist for one month (30 calendar days) with a $8,000 stipend so that person can be on the frontlines of research to see how scientists grapple with the problems of today’s world and forge new directions in science. The Fellowship will provide an opportunity that transcends a journalist’s usual short-term, deadline-driven reporting focus to explore a specific area of use-inspired, transdisciplinary research more deeply. The journalist will discover the state of limitations of current approaches, understand trends and the nuances of scientific debates in relevant fields, and interact with the top scientists collaborating across disciplines.
