> The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellowship seeks to increase communication skills in student scientists. From writing grants to interacting with their peers in the academic and research community, today's scientists must also be effective science communicators. Through participating in the program, fellows not only become more adept at describing scientific concepts to the journalism community, but also better equipped to engage the public about the impact of their work.   
> 
> The fellowship places senior undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate science and engineering students at media sites nationwide to work as science reporters for 10 weeks. Past sites have included the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune and NPR. The experience exposes reporters and editors to the expertise of student scientists, while also training the participating fellows in the nuances of journalism, ultimately improving the quality of scientific information disseminated by mass media outlets.
> 
> For more than 30 years the fellowship has trained student scientists who have gone on to contribute to the larger scientific discussion including, Eric Lander, founding director of The Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT; Edward J. Weiler, former associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate, NASA; and Kenneth Chang and Erica Goode of the New York Times.
> 
> AAAS is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing science around the world. Founded in 1848, AAAS serves some 262 affiliated societies and academies of science, serving 10 million individuals. AAAS also publishes the journal Science, which has the largest paid circulation of any peer-reviewed general science journal in the world, with an estimated total readership of 1 million.
> 
> AAAS selects 10–15 Fellows each summer. There is a $4,500 stipend plus travel expenses.
> 
> Deadline is January 15, 2012.
