> The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellowship seeks to increase communication skills in student scientists. From grant writing to interaction with their community, today’s young scientists must also be able science communicators. The lessons they learn through the Fellowship experience will benefit their career path and help them increase public understanding of science and technology.
> 
> The Fellowship places senior undergraduate and graduate science, engineering and mathematics students at media sites nationwide to work as science reporters for ten weeks. Past sites include the Chicago Tribune, NPR, LA Times, and Scientific American. By exposing reporters and editors to the expertise of student scientists, while also training those same students in the nuances of journalism, the program can improve the quality of information that is disseminated.
> 
> 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 The Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT; Edward J. Weiler, Acting Associate Administrator for the Science Mission Directorate, NASA; and Kenneth Chang and Erica Goode of the New York Times.
> 
> 
> AAAS is an international non-profit 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 15 - 20 Fellows each summer. There is a $4,500 stipend plus travel expenses.
> 
> Deadline is January 15, 2013.
