Apply for Science Immersion Workshop by Feb. 6

The Metcalf Institute for Marine and Environmental Reporting invites journalists to apply by Feb. 6 for fellowships to attend its 17th annual Science Immersion Workshop for Journalists, to be held June 7-12 at the Rhode Island University School of Oceanography.

The 10 fellowships includes travel support, room and board, and "career-changing professional training," Metcalf says. "Using Narragansett Bay – the world’s most-studied estuary – as a model ecosystem, Fellows learn how to interpret scientific data and sharpen their investigative reporting skills." The training aims to help fellows gain a greater familiarity with research methods and basic statistics, measure potentially harmful chemicals that are not currently monitored or regulated; attend lectures featuring top national researchers, policy makers and science communicators; and develop story ideas and expert sources.
